In Winnipeg community based urban agriculture is practiced for reasons of food quality, economics, environmental considerations, education and community development. Indicated by the four case studies, the distinctions between forms of urban agriculture such as rooftop gardens, greenhouse/hydroponics operations, allotment gardens and community gardens stem from their location, land use and mandate. Figure 8 compares the four Winnipeg case studies (Centre for Indigenous Environmental Resources, Growing Prospects Inc., the Manitoba Hydro Allotment Gardens and the West Broadway Gardening Group), by an analysis of the occurrence of the determined characteristics of urban agriculture - physical, economic, social and ecological. The table is followed by a discussion of different and like attributes.
