Urban Agriculture

Urban gardening is an easy and creative way to make use of empty city spaces, and doesn’t even require a yard!

Rooftops, balconies, terraces, and other unused areas work well to develop productive small-scale green spaces that improve the local urban environment. In addition to providing locally produced organic fruits and vegetables, urban gardening encourages intergenerational and intercultural relationships, provides physical activity for participants, reduces urban heat island effects, makes use of organic compost, and improves local biodiversity as well as air quality.
