"The goal of this project was to research urban food systems and design based on the theory Food Urbanism; how food relates to the organization of a city and how it becomes infrastructurethat transforms the urban experience. [...]Continuous productive landscapes have the potential to become a tool and or mechanism to sustainable growth in urban communities. As infrastructure in a city or town, continuous urban agriculture (UA) has the potential of being a thread that is woven through a community creating a rigid and ecological backbone for growth connecting neighborhoods, open spaces, and urban markets. Research is based oncase studies, interviews of producers and city officials in Ames, IA and observations of UA inLondon, UK. This research demonstrates that urban food systems have a potential of creating environmentally, socially and economically productive communities." Jason Grimm and Mimi Wagner
