Reliable access to safe, economic and nutritious food was at increasing risk many decades ago, burdening society andsocial relations, especially in urban areas. It is now known that climate change, the pandemics and the economic crisisare directly responsible for food security. For this reason, science has undertaken to safeguard the future of food. Anyproposal to reduce the catastrophic effects of the climate crisis on cities must be based on ecological farming methods toachieve sustainable urban horticulture. Co-cultivation is an old forgotten cultivation method, beneficial to mankind andthe environment. It can make a positive contribution to the agri-food planning of a city and to tackling the effects ofclimate change. A bibliographic review is carried out in the Mediterranean region concerning the co-cultivation(companion planting) of aromatic-medicinal plants and vegetables on the University premises (USAMV Bucharest). Anattempt is made to evaluate the adaptability of Mediterranean plants and the evolution of their co-cultivation. The resultsof this research will be useful to city managers, architects, agronomists, etc. This work aims to prove through acomparative method that the use of co-cultivation is a critical factor in sustainable urban agriculture and, consequently,food security and that climate change can affect people's eating habits
