Such cultural frameworks are much needed to enable the steady linking of urban food strategies to space-making processes ‐ including urban agriculture ‐ and both of them to users' desires, routines and capacities. This is especially true within education and research where qualitative approaches are indispensable if lasting change in our collective aims for food‐productive urban spaces is to be achieved. We contend that more practice‐based theory ‐ and philosophy ‐ is required to successfully initiate space‐focused urban food strategies as well as to back them up with supporting policy in the longer term.
In recent writing, the concept of Second Nature has been introduced to discuss, from different angles, the future of urban landscape in relation to the future of urban food production. This paper explores whether and how the concept of Second Nature could contribute to a cultural framework which, in turn, can support the formulation of a durable urban‐space‐focused food policy.
