Green belt Frankfurt/Main: Development of environmentally friendly forms of agriculture in the context of communal policy

The urban development project intends to introduce the 100 farmers located in Frankfurt with about 4,000 ha of land to their future tasks, which are increasingly in the area of environmental precautions as well as recreational and leisure activities. Especially in conurbations, the future tasks of agriculture lie increasingly in nature and environmental protection as well as in the leisure sector. By autumn 1992, a comprehensive municipal action plan had been drawn up for this purpose. The aim was the active inclusion of local farmers in the urban green and open space policy, with which comprehensive services of general interest (protection of soil, water, climate, promotion of biodiversity, environmental conservation for future generations), the satisfaction of social demands for healthy food and a humane environment as well as environmentally friendly local recreation can be realised. The implementation will take place step by step in close cooperation with the various interest groups and the city offices.
