Ülevaade Linnalabori 2008, aasta katuseaianduse katsest ning linnas toidu kasvatamise perspektiividest

“Edible City 1” is the first publication to introduce city agriculture into re-independent Estonia. It is based on a popular science test run by Linnalabor (Urban Lab) in 2008 where we measured the quantity of pollution in edible plants growing next to major roads. The experiment provided an opportunity to concentrate on the broad field of city gardening and to introduce it at public events and in the media.

Thank you for addressing this important question.. but as I suspect many readers of this blog don’t read Estonian, a summary of the results in English would be helpful, if the authors could provide it.
