Welcome

Urban Food Justice is the website of a ESRC funded research project titled “Urban agriculture, social cohesion and environmental justice. An action research project to inform responsive policy making”.

Started in March 2011 and ended in November 2013, the project aimed to investigate emerging forms of Urban Agriculture (UA) in the UK and their impact on social cohesion and environmental justice.

In this website you will find and download a number of useful resources produced during the research project: powerpoint presentations, videos and podcasts of speakers, weblinks to selected urban agricultural projects, suggested reading, a guide for people and groups willing to start a new food growing project, a policy brief and implementation guide for local authorities’ officers and policy makers, and a number of academic publications reporting the research outcomes.
