The long awaited sequel to “Continuous Productive Urban Landscapes: Designing Urban Agriculture for Sustainable Cities” by André Viljoen is here.
“Second Nature Urban Agriculture“, coauthored by André Viljoen (Author), Katrin Bohn, updates and extends the authors’ concept for introducing productive urban landscapes, including urban agriculture, into cities as essential elements of sustainable urban infrastructure. It reviews recent research and projects on the subject and presents concrete actions aimed at making urban agriculture happen.
As pioneering thinkers in this area, the authors bring a unique overview to contemporary developments and have the experience to judge opportunities and challenges facing those who wish to create more equitable, resilient, desirable and beautiful cities.
