      Assessing Urban Community Gardens’ Impact on Net Primary Production using NDVI
      Core Ideas
      • Urban agriculture can make positive impacts on the physical urban landscape.
      • We explore the use of vegetation indices commonly used in commercial agriculture and forestry in assessing environmental benefits from urban agriculture.
      • Cultivating a vacant lot for urban agriculture increases Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI).
      • Urban agriculture’s increasing NDVI correlates with an increase in net primary production.
      • Urban agriculture contributes to ecosystem services.

      Creating Spatial Synergies around Food in Cities
      Core Ideas
      • Multifunctional urban food initiatives (MUFIs) offer benefits in cities.
      • By combining activities and life-worlds MUFIs create internal and external synergies.
      • Social and environmental services are only partly provided by the state.
      • Multifunctionality poses challenges linked to the management of MUFIs.
      • Local governments can support MUFIs through recognition and targeted assistance.
