This thesis is a qualitative case study of the mobilization and negotiation of urban farming, as an urban sustainable and economic resilient practice in the City of Vancouver. The thesis is based on a triangulation of data-collection techniques, consisting of document review, semi-structured interview, and minor participatory observation. Considering the concurrent legal imposition of urban farming in this city, this case study analyzes how urban farming is advanced as a legitimate practice within different levels of the urban political terrain. Further, this thesis progresses insight into the concrete dynamics hindering and contributing to the mobilization and negotiation of urban farming as a legitimate practice in the City of Vancouver. By understanding this mobilization and negotiation as entwined relations between practice and discourse, this thesis emphasizes the constructive potential within interim appropriation of urban vague terrains for articulating differential socio-ecological imaginaries. Nonetheless, this thesis outlines simultaneously the risk involved in such endeavours, emphasising the need for sufficient synergy between bottom-up induced initiative and top-down facilitation.
