About Grown in the City

Speaker: Boglarka ‘Zilla’ Gulyas from MYHarvest

While it’s unlikely that we will meet all our food needs within city boundaries, there is a lot to be said for increasing the scale of urban horticulture.

Urban growing has social and ecological benefits. Additionally, new research suggests that growing more fruits and vegetables locally could make a significant contribution to food security.

But how much space is there in an urban environment for food production? And how much of a city’s fruit and vegetable demand could be met from this area? What crop yields can ordinary people expect from their garden or allotment plot?
