One touch of nature: The value of urban agriculture

Why does local food growing matter? What’s its value to a city?

How can we explain its impact? Indeed, how can we assess its impact and value to our society?

These matters are explored in One touch of nature: The value of urban agriculture, one of the Birmingham 2050 Scenarios series.

Here arguments from evolutionary theory, network dynamics and epidemiology are brought in to support and challenge why growing your own fruit and veg matters in a city like Birmingham.

An impressive list of people, including local food growers as well as New Optimist scientists, commented on earlier drafts of the Report. It’s a far better document with their contributions, too. So many thanks to:
