Getting the subject of urban agriculture down to manageable and prac-tical proportions in an Agrodok has been a cherished dream of Agromisa. The aim was to describe carefully considered, sustainableand practical methods for small-scale farming of crops in urban areas.The diversity and extent of the topic of urban agriculture seemed al-most impossible to define at every inch of the way, from drawing upthe main structure right up to the translation stage of this Agrodok.The result is that this is a sort of “unfinished” edition.I wish to thank those whose ideas and writing contributed to the crea-tion of this Agrodok, in chronological order: Pim Henstra, Gijs Spoor,Esther Kuiler – now a successful urban farmer in Wageningen – andJan Los. I also thank all the successive Agrodok coordinators for their constructive input. And, I am indebted to Wilfred Hertog (ETC) andMarjan van Dorp (IAC) for their comments on the content. Finally, thetranslator and the illustrator, each in their own way, added shape andform to the comprehensibility of the subject and quality of the result.We wish all those who undertake urban agriculture much success, andwe leave it to them to judge the extent to which we have succeeded inrealising our aim towards a satisfactory result. We invite the responsefrom readers and users of this Agrodok. Additional and practical de-scriptions will be most welcome. Critical readers can help feed discus-sion – also here at Agromisa – on topical developments in urban agri-culture.Agromisa realises that the urban animal husbandry theme has not yethad explicit exposure in the Agrodok series. Well aware of this gapAgromisa will do its utmost to bridge it.Jeroen BolandWriter and editor in chief Wageningen, December 2001
