Abstract

Irrespective of their specific form or of the way they are managed, urban allotment gardens and other urban gardens are important types of urban green spaces, able to influence, to contribute overall quality of cities. Particularly if part of broader green infrastructures, UAG may integrate positively within the complex inner metabolism of metropolitan areas. In particular the 10th chapter of the book, in which the author contributed actively, focus on the challenges and characteristics of urban agriculture practices in the city and the role of urban design and planning disciplines in order to ensure a better socio-spatial development.
