Samenvatting

Urban agriculture is currently the focus of societal interest as a highly promising contribution to sustainable urban development. For many agricultural professionals, city-oriented services such as healthcare, education, hospitality and retail trade are interesting alternatives to expanding the scale of their farms. For individual urban residents, urban agriculture offers an easily accessible location in and around the city to relax, learn, work, meet others and engage in various forms of recreation. And for the neighbourhood, urban agriculture often means improvement of the physical and social environment.
