Urban agriculture is gaining popularity in many metropolitan areas and its potential impacts on urban water budget may be significant. In this paper, the authors illustrate how the rainwater harvestable from buildings’ roofs could provide an option for irrigation in urban campaigns, by combining climate, geospatial data and satellite image classification. Simulations carried out on 2631 food gardens in Rome (Italy) showed that up to 33% of gardens could become self-sufficient in irrigation by using only rainwater from nearby roofs, and the remaining gardens could rely much less on conventional water sources.
