Urban Agriculture and Community Gardens

Course Code: CULN1453P
Credits: 3

The course provides an overview of contemporary urban agriculture and food security issues affecting Canadians across the country. It begins with a history of urban agriculture, which covers a range of traditions that existed wherever people converged to live in Canada and addresses some of the aboriginal approaches to agriculture as well as the traditions that immigrant settlers brought with them. The course explores reasons we need agriculture in our cities: food deserts, food-related behavioural and mental health issues, and the move to localization will be among the issues addressed. It will also cover where, how and what people are doing in our cities to enhance the local food supply and build community. In its concluding module, the course encourages students to attempt to see into the future and look at visionary models of urban agriculture as well as what social, government and economic resources would be needed to make them come into being.
