The Edible Cities Network (EdiCitNet) wants to make cities around the world better places to live through the implementation and institutional integration of Edible City Solutions.
Edible City Solutions (ECS) are all forms of sustainable urban food production, distribution and use – from neighbourhood gardens, to urban beekeeping and sheep farming, green facades or high-tech indoor farming, cooking and dining events and the use of locally grown urban food in restaurants.
Edible City Solutions have the power to:
• make cities healthier, greener and more livable
• create new green businesses and jobs
• empower local communities to overcome social problems
