Characterization of two urban farms in the Cuauhtemoc borough of Mexico City

Written by

Agricultural practices in cities have evolved to what is commonly described today as urban agriculture (UA). The term is often used ambiguously and can encompass a wide variety of agricultural practices that are carried out within the city, which can generate confusion and doubts about the real scope of UA. The claimed benefits sometimes portray UA as a sort of urban activity that is capable of providing a long list of benefits. However, cases have been made that critique some of the claims and numbers reported on UA. Also, as interests in AU grows, a better understanding of how UA cases operate would allow better design, planning an operation of urban farms. For these reasons, a more methodical, in depth characterization of cases should be considered. This paper proposes a methodical characterization based on the multiple functions and dimensions of UA based on the results of two case studies.
