Background
CITIES’ Farming the City pilot project has been running since November 2010, bringing city dwellers together to exchange knowledge and experiences about urban farming in Amsterdam, Stockholm and abroad. Phase one of Farming the City was completed in spring 2011 with the launch of free online resource <a href="http://www.farmingthecity.net/">www.farmingthecity.net</a>

FarmingtheCity.net maps and showcases key city farming projects on an interactive online site. Case study information includes location, type of project (commercial, community, innovation), status (start-up, on-going, completed) and position within the developing local food system (sourcing, preparation, distribution, consumption). In March 2011, project outcomes from phase one were exhibited over two months at ARCAM, Amsterdam. Groups and individuals are now able to upload information about their projects to the FarmingtheCity.net database and map.
