The book Farming the City. Food as a tool for today’s urbanisation is about how to use food a tool for today's urbanisation by employing effective and achievable small-scale local solutions.

We live in challenging times, but we do not seek to alarm or demoralise our readers. Seventyfive per cent of us will be living in cities by 2050, and we face serious issues regarding food miles, foodprints and CO2 emissions. But many of us have heard this story too many times and find global challenges too abstract, too remote and very difficult to solve in doable, practical ways.

The book Farming the City. Food as a tool for today’s urbanisation, however, offers affordable, achievable solutions: how the process of re-thinking our local food systems positively affects neighbourhoods, communities, politics and people. It is time to lower our sights and focus on what we can realistically do; today, tomorrow and next year. It is time to explore local solutions. Farming the City. Food as a tool for today’s urbanisation investigates the impact of local food initiatives and urban agriculture on our built environment, economic systems and community cohesion. It is about what we can do now to pave the way towards a locally-driven, equitable, post-carbon society.
