Urban Agriculture

2020 - 2021

Turkey's two major cities, Istanbul and Izmir contains the oldest agricultural fields in the world within an ancient city district. For most of its history, it was an exemplary city with its self-sufficient production. Now it consumes the agricultural product it produces in a year, almost in one day. Istanbul, where agricultural fields are buried in concrete and its villages are joined to the city, is about to lose the fertile lands that have fed it for millennia. In the epidemic period, when the importance of self-sufficiency is understood more clearly, there are people who do agriculture in the city, from the villages of Istanbul to the gardens in the city, from the roofs of shopping centers to their own gardens.
