The Edible City approach promises a strategic step towards the development of sustainable, livable, and healthy cities. Edible City Solutions (ECS) include different forms of urban farming combined with closed loop systems for sustainable water, nutrient, and waste management. We review scientific evidence on ECS benefits for urban regeneration, and describe the status quo of ECS in Rotterdam, Andernach, Oslo, Heidelberg, and Havana. We explore the capacity of ECS to enhance the multi-functionality of urban landscapes with a special focus on social cohesion and quality of life and identifying strategies for fostering socially relevant ECS implementations. Co-creation of ECS is crucial to avoid green gentrification. The strategic implementation and cross-sectoral mainstreaming of ECS increase awareness of the paradigm shift needed in urban lifestyles to face the challenges of the 21st century. View this paper
