The most urgent problems of old big cities are high paces of urbanization and further spread of the urban area. At the same time, there is a problem of degradation of existing urban spaces; there are many abandoned buildings in the center of the city and degradable landscapes within residential areas. All these problems lead to unfavorable social and ecologic situation. Lack of green areas, high level of the air contamination and finiteness of the earth resources are issues of the day. These problems never could be solved by architects, urban planners or even by local government alone. The goal is to advocate for the cross-disciplinary approach, use of the human resource and community participation as solving methods. It seems to me as a sensible and interesting idea to use the urban farming concept to improve the environment in cities.
