Intended as a ‘one stop shop’ of a veritable who’s who of leading urban agriculture authors and scholars, this book brings together multiple contributions on the design, development, science, and society of the rapidly expanding, multi-disciplinary field. The book is accessible, well written, free of jargon, and full of pictures, graphics and charts. Exciting and innovative, Integrated Urban Agriculture combines original papers and commentary/reflections to them which make it a perfect candidate for class discussions. The contributors form an exceptional international, interdisciplinary, expert dream team. Many of these authors have already been recognized as key contributors to this literature. However, the way the book is designed – as a conversation among a group of scholars, thinkers, authors – allows fresh new insights and adds vibrancy to this volume. It is not a simple how to do UA book. It is a thoughtful book about re-imagining urban living, urban livelihoods, and urban culture through urban agriculture.
