Urban Agriculture Magazine no. 33 – Urban Agroecology

This issue of the Urban Agriculture Magazine is a joint effort of the RUAF Foundation and the Centre for Agroecology Water and Resilience (CAWR).

The Magazine was launched at the occasion of the 8th AESOP conference on Sustainable Food Planning, titled “Re-imagining sustainable food planning, building resourcefulness: food movements, insurgent planning and heterodox economics” (14-15 November 2017), hosted at CAWR in Coventry, UK.
