Edible Landscapes

No one need go hungry in Africa. Traditionally people grew their own food in rural areas, but with urbanisation and specialisation of work, much of this knowledge has been lost. There has been a flickering renaissance in the form of permaculture and urban agriculture, but a lot more needs to be done, particularly in the face of climate change, where extended droughts can ravage the landscape and cause widespread famine. AJLA invited the submission of articles related to this topic, particularly on the role that landscape architects can, and have, played in creating ‘edible landscapes’.
