Urbanist Community
Agriculture is not an urban issue.

For many cities farming is indeed an afterthought. There are few farmers active within the municipal boundary of cities, and the politics of food growing has been relegated to other levels of government. The question of how to feed the city, however, is and remains one of the most pertinent issues for the organisation of urban life. The marginal urban attention to agriculture today leads to a mental and physical competition between city and hinterland, while they are part of the same larger ecosystem which affects the city directly. Cities and farmers have a shared responsibility towards the ecosystems they depend on.  Let’s team up with agroecological farmers to imagine ways of urbanization grounded in the cultivation of nature rather than its systematic consumption and destruction.
