We are in an era when gardens are front and center for hopes and dreams of a better world or just a better neighborhood, or the fertile space where the two become one. There are farm advocates and food activists, progressive farmers and gardeners, and maybe most particular to this moment, there’s a lot of urban agriculture. These city projects hope to overcome the alienation of food, of labor, of embodiment, of land, the conflicts between production and consumption, between pleasure and work, the destructiveness of industrial agriculture, the growing problems of global food scarcity, seed loss.

In 2012 the Peterson Garden Project started reaching out to vacant-property owners on Chicago’s North Side to spread the idea. The Pop-Up Victory Garden is the today’s version of the WWII original, using vacant urban land, for a short period of time, to teach people the basics of growing healthy, organic produce.  This year, more than 2,000 people will learn how to grow their own food and –– more important, say the organizers –– build community.

Food processing, such as meat butchering and beer brewing, began as a mostly urban industry.  During the last few decades, though, many manufacturers left the city.   Today, some of that production is returning to cities, while other industries that never left are seeing a renaissance.  Learn about how food shaped, and continues to shape, the histories of New York City and San Francisco with historians Robin Shulman, author of Eat the City, and Chris Carlsson, director of Shaping San Francisco.

"Unable to grow enough food to feed its population and facing soaring prices for imported goods, the Venezuelan government has opted for an ingenious solution – turning any disused space in cities into allotments where the urban poor can grow their own food"

"Having realized that consuming local foods is not always environmentally-preferable to consuming imported products (see my last post), what else can I do to save the planet as a conscious consumer? Obviously, I go for organic food. And as the number of fellow conscious consumers has significantly increased the last decade or so, aggregate demand for organic foods and drinks (OFD) has followed suit. In fact, the global market for OFD has more than tripled between 1999 and 2009 (see Figure 1)."

"On Saturday morning, Sedgwick became likely the first locale in the country to pass a “Food Sovereignty” law. It’s the proposed ordinance I first described last fall, when I introduced the “Five Musketeers”, a group of farmers and consumers intent on pushing back against overly aggressive state food regulators. The regulators were interfering with farmers who, for example, took chickens to a neighbor for slaughtering, or who sold raw milk directly to consumers."

"Building glocal food ecosystems is part of the struggle for economical independence by addressing our most basic need, food. Building glocal food ecosystems is turning the global food system upside down. It is putting locals in charge of their local resources and of the processes through which these resources are turned into necessities. It is humanizing the food system, putting the individual FIRST, by making Maslow's hierarchy of needs a priority. It is democratizing our food system by decentralizing it. It is also making our food system resilient and sustainable.
