Urban agriculture (UA) represents a growing movement toward transforming vacant lots, backyards, and even rooftops into productive green spaces.
As such the urban agriculture has the potential to offer a wealth of benefits.
Like any urban green space, urban farms and gardens can help improve air quality, moderate temperatures, and reduce storm water runoff.
For many inner-city residents, urban farms and gardens may also be the only places where they can regularly experience nature.
Why to further develop urban agriculture (UA)?
- To produce food in places where population density is highest
- To reduce transportation costs, connecting people directly to food systems and using urban areas efficiently.
- To improve the employment rate on national level of the population including serious increase of the labour market inclusion of NEET and people with disabilities on national level
- Adults (low skilled, low qualified, NEET, people with disabilities)
- Existing urban agriculture small farmers
- Adult educators
- Adult training centers
- Lifelong learning centers
