Urban gardening and the struggle for social and spatial justice

This concluding chapter briefly reviews the different, sometime diametric, ways in which the literature conceptualizes urban gardening. It brings together enthusiastic approaches that understand urban gardening for its transformative potential to materialise new ideas of cooperation-based relations and sustainable urbanism, and critical approaches that analyse it as another form of greenwash and as another strategy of neoliberal development. The chapter then discusses how the different chapters in the book have come to terms with this gap of understanding urban gardening and the resolutions and new directions for understanding they offer. The chapter concludes with outlining the main contribution of the book to current and future understanding of urban gardening.

Keywords:   Urban gardening, enthusiastic approaches, critical approaches, cooperation, sustainable urbanism, greenwash, neoliberal development
