  • URBAN FOOD STRATEGY MIX Sustainable Food Workshop for European Cities GROWING GOVERNANCE Business models for producing and transforming food more sustainably in cities - in gardens, in parks, on derelict lands, on rooftops, on balconies, etc. François Jégou (URBACT Lead expert) Strategic Design Scenarios f.jegou@gmail.com www.StrategicDesginScenarios.net An URBACT II Thematic Network - Sustainable Food in Urban Communities
  • citizens movements reclaiming growing places…
  • …and municipalities aiming at city food resilience URBACT Local Support Goups…
  • Competition between densification of cities and preserving free land to grow food within cities…
  • Rooftop garden experimentation… New forms of both intensive/qualitative urban agriculture Vegetable growing in bags experimented on the Royal library rooftop: an educational and awareness raising project on a famous building in the centre of Brussels with views to stimulate systematic terrace gardening and more production-oriented developments…
  • Aquaponics experimentation… New forms of both intensive/qualitative urban agriculture Aquaponics is the marriage of aquaculture (fish farming) and hydroponics (growing vegetables without soil). In June 2012, the "Village partner" in partnership with Group One developed a pilot scale aquaponics unit. Its purpose is to act as a catalyst project and test a series of economic parameters.
  • “Indoor farming” New forms of both intensive/qualitative urban agriculture Indoor production involves producing throughout the year in a short-chain production-distribution approach, with production intended for consumption onsite (at catered events) or in the region. The “close the loop” approach is sought for all the technical aspects related to flows of materials and energy. An Indoor Farming Toolbox has been produced with a map of opportunities for the region, potential spatial configurations and related business model in order to motivate a maximum number of businesses to work together on a project of this type in order to illustrate a range of innovative solutions in the region.
  • Suggested question for dicussion at tables… How can cities handle the conflict between urban densification and maintenance of growing spaces?
  • Lyon's involvement in a regional and multilevel agricultural policy (PSADER-PENAP) short speech from Lilian Pellegrino
  • St Louis' study on job creation in urban agriculture and food, Brussels Urban agriculture: work intensive activities > opportunity to create less-qualified jobs that are missing in cities…
  • Recovering traditional style and food production in Seixalbo … Urban agriculture: work intensive activities > opportunity to create less-qualified jobs that are missing in cities…
  • Eleonas’ urban farm... B1: before B1: after Crisis and increases of food poverty > increase 'citizens food resilience'
  • The Severn Project… Crisis and increases of food poverty > increase 'citizens food resilience'
  • New market gardening farmer, Vaslui… New value creation models and profitable businesses…
  • Faro DOC from the school, Messina… New value creation models and profitable businesses…
  • Suggested question for dicussion at tables… what is the potential of creating profitable companies and securing self-supporting jobs in urban agriculture? ?
  • Beyond rationality of urban food production, a symbolic form of reengagement after decades of agroindustry/disengagement of the population
  • Artistic initiatives… Herligheten allotment gardens, Oslo…
  • Promoting community gardens at city scale… 30 community garden, Lyon…
  • Involving schools in education immersions… Geitmyra school garden, Oslo…
  • Opening laboratories… Kids classes visiting university, Athens…
  • …shifting decorative garden to food production… Sogn kolonihager allotment gardens, Oslo…
  • …fostering window gardening “My urban kitchen garden" grow-your-own-kit -30 min. a week for delicious vegetables within anyone's reach!
  • reclaiming public green lawn (i.e. around parking)… Pré Santy inclusion garden, Lyon…
  • Organizing a reclaiming land platform… Stadsnära odling community gardens platform, Gothenburg…
  • Suggested question for dicussion at tables… How can cities stimulate (re)engagement of citizens in growing (i.e. window gardening; private garden; community gardens…)?
  • Urban Garden Soil Pollution by City of Lyon Emerging drawbacks: Soil and air pollution in cities… The city of Lyon implements prevention and proactive policies about garden soil pollution and define a process including: free soil diagnostic for community gardens and allotments; information to all members of those “contaminated” gardens to avoid health risks: selected food to grow, best practices, etc.; topsoil replacement and cleaning of the removed topsoil in specialized areas; phytoremediation experimentation (soil decontamination process based on plants).
  • Emerging drawbacks: Preserving quality in intensive agricultures…
  • Emerging drawbacks: Gentrification…
