Farming Matters | 31.2 |June 2015
This ‘twin’ issue of Farming Matters and Urban Agriculture Magazine, produced together by ILEIA and the RUAF Foundation, looks at some existing experiences with strengthened rural–urban linkages and what they teach us about improving food systems for both consumers and agroecological farmers.
This issue shows how agroecology is a consistent thread in building stronger connections between the rural and the urban. We see alternative marketing arrangements and the strength of rural identities in urban contexts for solidarity between farmers and urbanites.
