Title of paper: The Elephant and the Castle; towards a London Edible Landscape

In: Urban Agriculture Magazine no 22. Building Resilient Cities pp. 37-38 June 2009

However, authorities seem to have no clear and concise record of the volume of open public space and therefore grossly underestimate the potential of agriculture in the city.
