FAO report on urban and peri-urban agriculture
From the report:
Antigua and Barbuda has a long tradition of backyard (or “kitchen”) gardens, used to grow food for the family and a little extra for sharing with friends and neighbours. But that tradition was in steady decline, as people shifted away from fruits and vegetables to processed foods and diets rich in fat, sugar and salt. At the same time, farming areas have been depopulated as rural residents drifted to the capital city, Saint John’s. Almost 60 percent of the population now resides in the districts of Saint John’s City and Saint John’s Rural, and most of that “rural” population is likely to be engaged in urban pursuits.
