Urban Agriculture Typologies in Barcelona Metropolitan Region (Catalonia, Spain)

The European project "Cost Action TD 1106 Urban Agriculture Europe" put us a homework: to reflect different projects of Urban Agriculture in an Atlas. These projects encompass since family gardens (the gardeners cultivate their own food in their balconies, terraces, gardens, patios, backyards) until farm holdings that they have included in their business model the proximity with the cities or the citizens.

Food Farm - Can Brossa - Tiana

Oscar, Giulia and me have uploaded various urban agriculture projects in Barcelona Metropolitan Region. It is not an exhaustive list of projects but it is representative of this diverse phenomenon called "Urban Agriculture" in Barcelona.

Community Garden - Pla Buits - Barcelona - Espai Germanetes 
Allotment Garden - Sant Adrià del Besòs
Despite this great diversity and the number of people involved in urban farming projects (gardeners, farmers, citizens and consumers), Urban Agriculture is not included in the political agenda yet.

Squat Garden - Barcelona
Educational Garden - Ca l'Arnús - Badalona
Social and Food Farm - la Klosca - Mataró
