City Harvest home

The City Harvest website collects information on the wide range of benefits associated with urban agriculture, aiming to strengthen the movement in the UK and across the globe.

On the site you will find a host of publications documenting the social, educational, environmental, economic and health-related effects of urban agriculture as well as case studies which provide working examples of these benefits in action.

City Harvest is for everyone interested in food growing and sustainability and aims to be particularly useful for anyone who is looking for “hard” evidence to support urban agriculture related projects.
