Food in the City: Urban growing and peri-urban farming

March 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm GMT

The benefits, opportunities and challenges of growing food in or near the city.

Increasingly people in urban and peri-urban areas are growing food. There are many advantages to this: producing more good quality food, bringing producers and consumers closer together, bridging the rural/urban divide, creating land justice. This seminar will explore the thinking behind these initiatives and policies, the benefits to people and the environment and what needs to be done to facilitate more food growing and production in or near urban areas.
