Agriculture has traditionally been viewed as a primary means of subsistence, with an emphasis on meeting the basic needs of food, feed, clothing, and shelter. Historically, agricultural activities have been concentrated in rural areas. However, the time has come to harness the potential of urban resources to engage in agriculture-related activities. Technological advancements have created new opportunities for revitalizing these activities in an urban environment. Urban ecosystems, with their unique constraints such as limited land area, restrictions on land use, and high labor costs, require special interventions to engage in agricultural pursuits.

The book covers a wide range of topics related to urban agriculture, including floriculture, vegetable production, fruit cultivation, medicinal plants, landscape management, lawn preparation, mushroom cultivation, beekeeping, value addition, vertical gardens, hydroponics, green walls, and bonsai making.
