New cities with more life: Benefits and obstacles

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapterpeer-review


Garnett (1996a) suggests that urban food production provides an excellent means of involving groups who are often discriminated against, such as women, ethnic minorities and the elderly, in sociable, productive activity. Urban food growing has also often provided a valuable means of expression of local or ethnic identity, for example through growing culturally significant produce. A well-known example of this in the UK is the Ashram Acres community garden in Birmingham used by its local, mainly Asian residents.
