    The article concern on application of the idea of urban agriculture in Poland. The concept has not yet been widely recognized in Poland, that is why the emerging practitioners and their initiatives can thus very well be named as ‘early birds’. To capture general views on UA, similarities and differences in opinions and to formulate possibilities for UA in Warsaw we organized a workshop with representatives of main UA organizations in the Polish capital as well as representatives of the City Hall. The workshop tasks reflect different topics as:
    identification of UA, aims of UA, location of UA, the future of UA, opportunities and barriers for UA development, and the role of local authorities in UA development. To conclude, the UA activities represent in Warsaw promote
    mostly the social and ecological aspects with the role of UA in the protection of open green space in the city. Professional production in the city linked to job creation is currently not seen as of great importance. The most UA forms in Warsaw are related to allotment gardens and agricultural holdings.
