Ecoscaping and Sustainable Urban Micro Farming

Urban areas lack the space needed for local communities to grow their own food and thus progress towards food security at the most local levels. The Ecoscaping and Sustainable Urban Micro Farming (EcoSUMfarming) project is motivated by a simple question – how can we scale-up sustainable landscape management to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions while ensuring food, water, and energy security. The objective is to develop a simple, cheap, and replicable system that is an economically sustainable method of eco-farming / eco-gardening / eco-agriculture in space restricted urban areas.

It includes court-yard organic-farming, vertical gardening, ecoscaping of empty spaces and conservation work at the degrading public spaces around in the urban area.
