Summary "Public Produce profiles municipal food growing efforts in public spaces, illustrating that there is both a need and a desire to supplement our existing food production methods outside the city with opportunities inside the city. Each of these efforts works in concert to make fresh produce more available to the public while reinforcing a sense of place and building community, nourishing the needy and providing economic assistance to entrepreneurs, promoting food literacy and good health, and allowing for "serendipitous sustenance.""--BOOK JACKET.
