Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationFeatured article


Urban Agriculture (UA) sounds similar to Urban Agroecology (UA+), but they may have little in common.
Urban agriculture is like agriculture in general. It is a broad term including subsistence agriculture, organic agriculture, industrial agriculture and factory farming. Urban agriculture can also include subsistence farming in a city, urban allotments and urban organic horticulture. But it can also include high-intensity vertical farming and metropolitan food clusters or ‘agroparks’. These could be termed ‘factory farming in a city’.
