Topics include fundamentals of horticulture, soil properties and fertility, pest and disease management, and food preservation.

We examine the historic and contemporary forces driving urban agriculture, and the ways that it contributes to processes of gentrification, food security, biodiversity, energy conservation, job creation, human health, and well being. We also discuss the importance of urban agriculture for food and restorative justice movements..
