This project will extend knowledge of the diversity of agriculture in urban areas. It will identify the social, economic and political barriers to urban agriculture and explore the potential for extending its practice in the climate change-affected future. The results of this work will provide a much-needed commentary on the public health, nutritional and environmental benefits of greater urban food production and to make a valuable contribution to the development of the federal government’s national food plan.
