What are some Peri Urban Garden current practices and challenges?

Hello, my name is Chrissy and I am the peri urban garden intern this year at echo. Peri urban is a new focus in the appropriate technologies area at echo and I am looking to learn more about these zones between urban and rural places, the needs that are found there currently and how we can begin to better represent these diverse regions. I wanted to start a conversation to see:

What are some common agricultural practices and technologies that are working well right now for this context?
What needs could be addressed or researched more? (e.g. nutrition, energy, clean water, soil erosion?)

Thank you!
