a sustainable design option for urban communities
food urbanism
 page 2
The goal of this project was to research urban food systems and design based on the theory
 Food Urbanism; how food relates to the organization of a city and how it becomes infrastructurethat transforms the urban experience
. Productive landscapes as tools to sustainable growth haveonly recently been written about in the U.S. and Canada. Continuous productive landscapes have the potential to become a tool and or mechanism to sustainable growth in urban communities.As infrastructure in a city or town, continuous urban agriculture (UA) has the potential of beinga thread that is woven through a community creating a rigid and ecological backbone for growth connecting neighborhoods, open spaces, and urban markets. Research is based oncase studies, interviews of producers and city officials in Ames, IA and observations of UA inLondon, UK. This research demonstrates that urban food systems have a potential of creatingenvironmentally, socially and economically productive communities.
