Abstract This paper is about peri‐urban farmers who turned the threat of the city into an opportunity, by collaborating with a wide range of stakeholders, and by developing a strategy aimed at delivering ecosystem services. This way, they made their farm too important to be converted into a residential area or urban park. Although citizen involvement with the farm has grown, involvement of governmental actors has dwindled as soon as collaborative action was achieved. This paper makes a plea for learning in addition to action.1 Keywords – collaborative governance, peri‐urban farming, ecosystem services, farming for nature
