The Working Group on Urban Farming will focus on the integration of resources from other working groups (water, nutrients…) into urban farming systems as well as on the resources provided through urban farming for further use in other WGs. The WG will further investigate different urban farming systems especially developed for dense urban areas (e.g. underground farming, vertical and rooftop farming) and their potential for symbiosis with other WGs (e.g.: urban farming with wastewater, urban farming on formally contaminated soil after phytomining was carried out, etc.).
While the main purpose of urban farming is food production within a city, this COST Action will pay closer attention to other resources available from urban farming usually considered waste. Furthermore, the evaluated systems will consider the amount of resources available from other WGs.
