520    A significant phenomenon that affects nearly two-thirds of
       Russian city-dwellers, family urban agriculture – with its
       allotment gardens, allotment vegetable gardens, and dacha 
       allotments – grew out of a unique history and cultural 
       representations. The contemporary Urban Grower in Russia 
       holds a legacy of the famines and traumatisms of the 
       Second World War, which prompted Soviet authorities to 
       encourage the development of allotments and gardening 
       education, which they had previously opposed. The school 
       system gave Urban Growers a literary education that 
       connects working the soils and working plants with beauty,
       the good life, and culture. Urban Growers have won the 
       right to build a small house on their garden plots to make
       a place for holidays that enlarge their living space. The 
       allotment gardens of Russia are the most developed sign of
       a rhizome that extends over the neighbouring countries of 
       Asia and a large portion of Europe. Its history and 
       current forms are different from the allotments of Western
       Europe. But some similarities are identifiable. The 
       similarities observed suggest a possible common future, 
       insofar as the Russian experience conveys universal 
       teachings. It opens the way for thinking of an alternative
       to the single-family house that is accused of polluting 
       and destroying the soil. It shows the possibility of 
       reorganising the use of urban and periurban soils to 
       increase the resilience to crises in terms of food 
       security and resistance to emotional and psychological 
       stress. It questions the representations of the 
       international community on integral human habitat by 
       showing how people need immediate, direct, and active 
       contact with nature. This experience offers many useful 
       references for resolving common problems of the major 
       cities in the world: food security, poverty, violence, 
       environmental issues, and housing crises. Interrupted for 
       almost a century, a new international scientific dialogue 
       including the Urban Grower of Russia can become 
       established on these subjects, which are decisive for the 
       future of a definitively urban world
