Public Produce

Cultivating Our Parks, Plazas, and Streets for Healthier Cities, Revised Edition

Island Press
In this timely update to the first edition, Public Produce author Darrin Nordahl uncovers the great community good that can result simply from planting fruits and vegetables in our public spaces.  He profiles dozens of successful projects, realized with the active support and involvement of city government and motivated citizens. This creative approach has many benefits: revitalizing unused land, connecting residents with their neighborhoods, and promoting healthier lifestyles. Enthusiasts of urban agriculture will be inspired by the potential of growing food in diverse public places, from plazas and parks to the grounds around parking lots, libraries, schools, city halls, and more. 
Darrin Nordahl is an award-winning writer on issues of food and city design. He currently lives and writes in Berkeley, California.
