2017 - Ongoing
Paris, Île-de-France, France
In January 2016 Paris' Mayor, Anne Hidalgo, signed with 33 companies the "100 hectares goal" convention.
Soon after, the City Council launched an open call for Urban Agriculture projects, Parisculteurs, to be made in private and city owned spaces. Tens of projects came out of earth and at least other four open calls have been launched, since then.
I had just moved to Paris and the oxymoron “urban agriculture” caught my attention. I had heard of urban farms in the US, Germany, Singapore... but nothing really about Paris. I soon discovered that Paris was far behind and that after the COP 21 its Mayor wanted to reduce the gap rapidly.
For different reasons that go from the social to the economic, but always looking for the sustainable and ecologic, associations, entrepreneurs and start-up are working hard to make it happen.
I started to document it from spring 2017.
