Food in the City: Review of Psychological Impact of Growing Food in Urban Spaces

Author’s Affiliation: Department of Psychology, Indraprastha College for Women, University of Delhi.

 

Abstract: The activity of growing food is an integral part of human civilization and survival. The present paper attempts at exploring the psychological impact of growing edible greens in the context of urban environment. The review focuses on the impact of growing food, with primary focus on psychological impact and mental health. The findings indicate an encouraging trend in urban farming, though research activity and academic interest in the area of psychological impact of growing food seems limited. Additionally, the review throws light on the sparse research in developing countries on the said topic.

Keywords: urban farming, psychological impact, mental health.
