Due to the results of my recent anthropological analysis conducted in a community garden in Budapest my aim is to highlight the keypoints, dynamics, and community demand on the organic food production. In this paper I present the main discourse topics, acts and behaviours that sorrounds crop cultivation and defines what the community members consider as organic. Organic is a social construct, and as such, thinking about this issue is multifarious. While contributing to this issue with specific considerations, at the same time I try to measure the importance of organic food in urban context.
