Community & Urban Agriculture Focus

Pedestrian Space approaches the topic of urban and community agriculture from multiple lenses, including:

• Food sovereignty, healthy local food systems and community resilience

• Food access, health, privilege and (in)equity

• Food literacy via school and community gardening

• Championing urban gardening to be more accessible across communities 

• Well-being, health and therapeutic benefits associated with gardening  

• Issues of local gardening and agriculture in the scope of diverse potential crisis (war, migration, pandemic, supply chain distribution, natural disaster etc)

We have been working on our first volume of proposals this year, which includes case studies from around the world on community and urban agriculture projects. More on that will follow and we are open to more non-academic and academic publishing projects on this topic.

This week, our first ‚advert’ for placement offers for grad students at a European university went live. If placed, students will have the opportunity to work with Pedestrian Space on these issues in their local community context from their own disciplinary perspective and context and receive academic credit. 

If you are with a university and involved in similar placement programs and interested in collaborating, offering students an opportunity to be placed with Pedestrian Space on these topics, please DM or email

If you are working with issues of urban and community agriculture, particularly via the lens of food equity, community resilience, education (school gardens, educational gardens etc), health (hospital gardens, therapeutic gardens as well as public health) and related themes, please feel free to connect as we expand our network of people working with and advocating for these issues.
