Urban agriculture is defined as agriculture that is practiced within or on the periphery (intra-urban and peri-urban agriculture, respectively) of a locality or city, consisting of the growth, production and distribution of food products. Normally, production resulting from urban agriculture is carried out in small areas, intended mainly for own consumption or for sale in local markets on a small scale, allowing to supplement the household income.
