Sustainability through urban farming

Urban farming in allotment gardens has long been a popular pastime among Swedes, in many corners of the country. Residents share a piece of land cultivated into gardens where they grow fruits and vegetables. Koloniträdgårdförbundet (the Association of Allotment Gardens) oversees this initiative. The 100 year-old organisation represents over 25,000 members and 260 member organisations, including urban farmers and gardening collectives.
