Description:The sustainability of cities is one of the most relevant purposes of recent times. In this context, peri-urban areas acquire a priority role as they combine social and ecological problems associated with the activities that are developed there. Within this framework, the objective of the present work is to identify the land uses present in the peri-urban area of Mar del Plata (Argentina) in the year 2018 and characterize the evolution of the horticultural activity from its beginnings to the present. In the County, 6 main uses, were classified on satellite images, among which “horticultural areas” cover only 7% but contribute significantly to the local economy. From the analysis of the expansion and intensification of these areas it is expected to deepen the discussion regarding the impacts generated by the horticultural activity with the finality of achieving greater sustainability in the local territory.
