I would like to acknowledge the support of all the staff at FUNDECI in Nicaragua for assisting with this research. Also, I want to thank all the participants in San Augusto. This research was carried out with financial support from Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC) through an AGROPOLIS award for urban agricultural research and a Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) doctoral fellowship. The research fulfilled part of the requirements of a Ph.D. degree from the Department of Geography, York University, Toronto, Canada.
