Kicking off day 2 in Rosario with a topical illustration of the interrelationships and tensions of urbanisation #thefightbetweencarnivalandlent
Follow this #thread to find out about today’s
urbanisinginplace.org activities!
Today we look at the theory informing our research into #urban #agroecology inc: #periurban spatial & social relationships, #intersectionality & how/who defines value - and how resources are metabolised in the city.
You thought we were just here talking about growing tomatoes didn’t you?
A great observation on different conceptions of #value: in Argentina #indigenous peoples consider #water #soil #sunlight as #assets not #resources
We’re so not talking about tomatoes: @VaneBailo just explained Actor Network Theory, Assemblage Theory & Feminist Neomaterialism through the medium of a sing-a-long of “We Will Rock You”
A framework for a just #urban agroecological transformation? from @VaneBailo
And from #rock to #soil (did you see what we did there?) ... if soil stewardship is a key element of agroecology what would an city ‘teaming with soil life’ look like in a future agroecological urbanism? cc @LondonNPC
The idea of “living soils” changes our conceptions of soil from a support material or substrate that can be supplemented with inputs, to a new paradigm in which soils are managed for life in an #urban #agroecology
It’s lunchtime and we are visiting an #agroecological farm in Rosario!
Being generously fed by the food growing project #empanadas #picnic
We’re here talking about #urban #agroecology but Rosario is surrounded by 20M Ha of soya monocrop!
A monocrop of soya is not suited to a diverse wetland landscape leading to problems of drainage and soil loss - and are not a food crop for local production but are more of a commodity crop requiring long distance transport to markets / end users
In the same way that a monocrop is not resilient neither is a single high density & waterproof urban form. We need a mosaic of natural, developed and food growing spaces to emable water, nutrient and energy management in the city #urban #agroecology
In terms of addressing flood risk: for an agroecological growing space only 10% of rainfall runs off into surface drainage systems. This rises to over 80% for many fully developed urban areas. Agroecological food growing spaces have a potential role in #urban water management
