Urban agriculture in the Paris region
This cartography provides a first image of urban agriculture in the Paris region. It is not intended to be exhaustive but gives some idea of the diversity and distribution of its various forms. Five forms of urban agriculture are identified, namely: peri-urban farms, community gardens, micro farms, urban greenhouses and indoor systems, individual urban agriculture.

Only community gardens with a surface area of over 500 sq. m. are shown.
