Agroecological food growing is a niche. All forms of agriculture will be needed to feed the planet.

On a global scale, agroecological food production plays a very significant role, outweighing the importance of industrial agriculture in many countries in the global south. The residual agroecological practices in the global north are destined to remain niche as long as they are in competition with a globalized agricultural model that extracts resources from elsewhere and has benefited from decades of public infrastructure investments such as our road and harbour networks. Can we redirect public means to support a distinctively local food system? What is the needed infrastructure for agroecological farmers in urbanised environments? In other words, how do we imagine an agroecological urbanism?
