At the intersection of the public realm, the “eat local” movement, and the lack of local fresh food in many urban neighborhoods, 1 lies urban agriculture: food grown on the street for the local community. How we choose to produce and distribute food has far-reaching effects on the community fabric, health, regional and local development, ecological security, economic development and social justice. Urban agriculture in the public right-of-way can become a vital, nourishing and energizing element of the street scene—especially on neighborhood streets.
