Abstract

Copenhagen seeks to be carbon neutral by 2025. Miljøpunkt Amager, a Copenhagen environmental organization, was curious about urban farming’s potential to further environmentalism in Amager. Our project examined the environmental, social, political, economic, civic, and public health implications of urban agriculture in order to identify the requirements for the realization of urban farms in the region. We analyzed the costs of an urban farm in order to create economic models of potential farm implementations. Through research and interviews, we were able to assess the potential of urban farming within Amager and provide recommendations to further promote urban agriculture in the community.
