Abstract

The components of the human scale in urban agriculture policies are investigated in order to contribute to the elaboration of a methodological proposal that demonstrates the role of urban and peri-urban farmers in the supply of vegetables to the Metropolitan Region of Natal, while emphasizing the importance of these social actors and their activity for the purpose of understanding the city as a heterogeneous, multiple, open and relational space, also as an environment that produces life and healthy food.
