Agricultural Urbanism and Municipal Supported Agriculture: A New Food System Path for Sustainable Cities
modeling, outreach programming and leading-edge development to address two of society’s most pressing and linked
challenges- urban and agricultural sustainability.
Agricultural Urbanism prescribes the full integration of the agri-food system within the planning, design, development and
function of cities and vice-versa. Agricultural Urbanism is a mechanism to connect urbanites to their environment and to
their agri-food system, reduce their dependence on an ecologically unsound and increasingly vulnerable global-scale agrifood
system and create a significant regional economic sector.
