I’m back! After a long time away I have returned more inspired than ever to write about the wonderful examples of sustainable cities that I witnessed on my 8 month trip in the Americas.
One of the reasons that I was absent from the Brisbane to Bogota blog was that I was finishing my research into Urban Agriculture and City Farms and their role in Community Engagement – which is research I have completed as part of my undergraduate degrees.
Urban Agriculture and City Farms and their Influence on Community Engagement is a study of the community aspects of urban gardening. The aim of this research was s to explore the roles that urban gardening play in community development and how urban agriculture can contribute to building community. This was achieved through site visits of community gardens and city farms in the United States and Australia, and site visits of urban agriculture farms in Cuba, during May to August 2010.
The report is available here Urban Agriculture and City Farms and their role in Community Engagement
Now that I am back I am looking forward to writing more and stay connected to all that is happening in the world of Sustainable Cities.
