dcterms.descriptionThis video from the Resource Centre on Urban Agriculture shows the urban food chain and the variety of approaches taken by town farmers: a goat in the basement, some herbs on a balcony and inner city vegetable gardens along the railway line, with issues such as soil fertility, labour, land and water availability playing key roles. With cameos of cultivation, marketing, technologies and stakeholders (including a few errant goats), the video opens a window on Ecuador, Senegal, Tanzania and Vietnam. In Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, garbage collectors separate organic waste from the rest and sell it as compost to the public. In Dakar, Senegal, a water treatment plant experiments with Pistia stratiotes (water lettuce) to clean (not purify) waste water and use it for irrigation. The video is good material for use in workshops or training sessions for urban planners, NGO staff and others whose work touches on the green spaces in urban areas.
