The city of La Paz, in Bolivia, faces a series of food security challenges linked with the access to food during road blockings caused by protests. A promising solution to this issue is presented by a network of urban agricultural farms in the heart of the city. This thesis proposes an exploration of a self-sustaining project of urban agriculture that will inform a network of urban agricultural centres. The proposal is to have an agricultural garden which harnesses natural water from water springs and use it combined with traditional Andean methods of cultivation, such as the terracing and raised fields systems. The project will interact closely with local communities and engage them with culture and cultivation.
