Farming the City

CITIES is applying for research funds to support and promote the development of urban agriculture practices in the city of Amsterdam.

CITIES organizes hands-on, knowledge-sharing workshops, rooted in live development projects, in which local farmers, local communities, policy makers, architects and engineers come together to share experience, skills and intentions. In a period of global urban change, in which cities are greatly in need of inexpensive, sustainable innovations, ‘imaginative urban research’ is a direct way to help tackle local issues. By exploring new ways of developing urban agriculture, CITIES aims to promote transformation and inventiveness in accessible, practical ways.
