Abstract

Urban agriculture is considered to be a core element of the future of sustainable cities. The recent resurgence in interest in urban agriculture draws on a heritage of allotment and community gardening, and is inspired by efforts to improve the sustainability of local food systems. The paper analyses a case study of a newly established community gardens in London. It uses the multi-level perspective on transitions to sustainable development developed by Grin et al (2010) and modelling of cities as complex systems by Wilson (2010a) and Batty (2005) to analyse the potential for emerging community gardens to contribute to transitions to sustainable urban food systems.
