This thesis, designed to be a manual for planners, city officials, and residents/community members, helps people follow goals of best management practices in urban agriculture and implement these solutions in a self-sufficient way. Critical to the goals of the project are low-cost, low-maintenance insertions that any city can use as a guide to solve food insecurity. The design uses three different scaled approaches (large – two block, medium – inner block, and small – vacant lot) to address food problems through a method known as hugelkultur. This strategy for foodscaping manages common urban issues – water, soil, sun, and accessibility – to find a cohesive design solution. The illustrative design scheme following the report uses site-specific examples for design implementation within the case study of Baltimore, Maryland.
