Carrot City: Designing for Urban Agriculture, curated by Mark Gorgolewski, June Komisar and Joe Nasr from Ryerson, explores the relationship between urban agriculture and urban design. Through maps, multi-media installations, sound compositions, case boards, field guides, interactive websites, products, videos and a weekly public platform, Living Concrete/Carrot City engages the linkages between creative action and civic urban agriculture.
