L'autoproduction alimentaire dans les jardins familiaux de l'agglomération caennaise

Abstract : Urban collective gardens played a key role in providing food over wars and economic crises and in minimizing malnutrition and alcoholism. Nowadays, food issues are related to the accessibility to food of good quality leading to the emergence of short food circuit and organic farms. The role of urban agriculture has changed with the multiplication of urban farms and community gardens and the diversification in people working in allotment gardens. This work includes several parts: mapping work (history, surfaces, spatial repartition), surveys and interviews, and statistical analyses with multivariate analyses. The primary objective of this work is to determine the different aspects of allotment in Caen (forms, organization, history, recruitment) and the characteristics of their gardeners (social profiles). The secondary objectives are to describe the factors that impact on gardeners’ practices (time spent in their gardens, assigned function too their gardens), on their vegies production (type of vegies grown) and to understand the consequences of the allotment on the gardeners' food habits (groceries shopping versus own vegies consumption).
