More information


“This event focuses on urban spaces as productive places through the reintroduction of food production and the encouragement of short circuits. The discussion focuses on a nourishing urbanism combining the approaches of urbanism and agriculture. 

Based on the presentation of the book Food Urbanism by Craig Verzone and Cristina Woods, participants will be invited to share their experiences and expertise on urban agriculture in a Round Table. While the book presents typologies, strategies and case studies of urban agriculture planning, the roundtable aims to open up different perspectives and practices from several disciplines.”
