Abstract

The link between spatial planning and public health is recognized as an opportunity to support the development of healthier urban environments and well-managed green space. Within this context, there is a growing body of evidence for the contribution that urban agriculture (UA), gardening, and food growing can bring to influencing health and its wider determinants. Through regeneration of land, UA can bring benefits to health at a community and individual level, while contributing to wider health policy development.
