Showcasing the best examples of current design, Carrot City
presents strategies for reintroducing urban agriculture to our cities.
Over forty innovative projects explore creative approaches to making
space for urban food production, ranging from ambitious urban plans to
simple measures for growing food at home. The authors show how city planning and
architecture that considers food production as a fundamental
requirement of design results in more community gardens, greenhouses
tucked under raised highways, edible landscapes in front yards in place
of resource-devouring lawns, walls that bring greenery into dense city
blocks, and productive green roofs.
