Generous responses to researching Continuous Productive Urban Landscapes in Leeds

At the Urban Food Justice launch event Andre Viljoen presented his research on CPULS Continuous Productive Urban Landscapes – the need to develop sustainable urban food production within the boundaries and the edges of cities. He cited case studies from the US, Germany and the UK such as; Laboratories for Urban Agriculture, Brooklyn, Growing Power, Milwaukee, Princessinnengarten, Berlin and East Hale Allottments, Brockwell Park, London.

The experience of the workshop events I’ve been to so far has been fascinating. I’ve witnessed people bringing their individual projects such as a co-housing project with community garden, or a market garden start-up business to the event and heard policy-makers and planners sharing their knowledge and opening up their address books so that people can move their projects forward a pace. This feels like a really unusual platform where many diverse people are coming together to fulfil common goals, in a generous and open way. I’m really interested in the possibilities of making a creative response to the Urban Food Justice programme.
