This 5,000 word chapter brings together the political, discursive, and material threads to consider the “city of forests” and “city of farms” as two different assemblages. It explores these pieces of urban nature in the context of an early-21st century global city that has engaged in municipal long-term sustainability planning, investment in green infrastructure, and creation of food policy visions. It closes with conclusions and further probing questions about how, why, and for whom we create urban forests and farms. In examining what sort of nature we want to produce, the chapter explores possibilities for new governance arrangements, management practices, design strategies, and uses for urban land.

Keywords:   urban forestry, urban agriculture, urban ecosystems, socio-nature, sustainability, urban nature
