The Farming the City project began in November 2010 as an initiative of the Amsterdam-based organization CITIES, bringing city dwellers and urban farmers together to explore inspirational ways of producing, storing, cooking, preserving, distributing, and sharing food. Since then, it has fostered urban farming projects all over the world, to great acclaim, and with considerable press coverage.

Farming the City: Food as a Tool for Today’s Urbanization  looks at this booming global phenomenon, considering in detail 30 projects, such as City Growers’ transformation of empty spaces in Boston, Eagle Street Rooftop Farm in New York, and FarmScape in Los Angeles. All of these enterprises are illustrated with color photographs that record their evolution and installation.
