Does a “chart” regulating spaces that could be used or not to implement urban agriculture, for example regulating the fact that urban agriculture projects cannot develop in locations close to busy roads or close to known source of pollutants, exist? Also, is there any legal framework concerning practices in urban agriculture, as well as concerning the “urban farmer status”?
- Recycling urban waste as possible use for rooftop vegetable garden
- Socially acceptable urban agriculture businesses
I don’t know if there is any chart regarding urban agriculture, but I think your question is also related to our use of urban space in general; including fallow lands. Is it better to transform the space available on the ground into gardens, UA projects and buildings or is it better to let uncultivated space in order not to overexploit the soil? What kind of city do we want, to face environmental crisis, demographic concentration? It’s particularly a relevant issue for cities affected by flooding.
