About the product

A new and important publication which reveals that urban agriculture has been overlooked, underestimated and underreported. It outlines the historical prejudices and biases against urban farming, which for the most part are either unfounded or obsolete. Actual problems that can result from ill-practised cultivation and animal rearing in urbanized areas are identified, as are the many benefits of well-planned and well-executed urban agriculture. Potential methods of promoting the urban agriculture industry are carefully explored.
