Urban Agriculture: Growing Vegetables in Cities By J Boland, Agromisa CTA co-publication, Agrodok Series, 2002. 84 pp. ISBN 90 77073 25 6 CTA number 1087. 5 credit points
The Agrodok series has caught up with urban agriculture. The first two chapters of the manual are largely devoted to coping with the practical differences between farming in cities and in rural areas. The practised urban farmer can skip these. Otherwise, it is a decent review of pollution, environmental and health aspects, recycling of material, coping with lack of space, small-scale growing methods and socio-economic aspects all are dealt with in detail. A useful publication to get you going with growing vegetables and herbs in town. What we re waiting for now is an Agrodok on keeping animals in urban and peri-urban areas.
