Joe Nasr teaches courses on Urban Agriculture and Urban Food Security through the Centre’s Food Security Certificate.  He has mentored a number of architecture students working with food- and agriculture-related design.  Joe is affiliated with several urban agriculture organizations, including the Urban Agriculture Network, MetroAg, and Toronto Urban Growers.  He co-curated the traveling exhibition: Carrot City - Designing for Urban Agriculture, soon to be adapted into a book.  He coordinated in 2005-2007 a project on “Regional Training and Knowledge Sharing in Urban Agriculture for the Middle East and North Africa”.  The 1996 book he co-authored, Urban Agriculture: Food, Jobs and Sustainable Cities, has become the standard text on the subject.
