Gardening communities as urban archives and social resource in urban planning

Elisabet M. Nilsson and Veronica Wiman’s paper “Gardening communities as urban archives and social resource in urban planning”, presented at the Nordes conference, is now available online.

ABSTRACT – This exploratory paper presents initial thoughts on a research theme described as Urban Archiving. The aim is to explore potentials of urban gardening communities both to be read as urban archives and to become platforms for transmitting knowledge and connecting different communities of practices that engage in urban development and societal change (e.g., design communities and urban gardening communities). Issues to be explored concern how practices of urban archiving can contribute to a more holistic view of our cities, including urban gardening communities that engage in urban sustainable development but are seldom invited to influence matters of urban development.
