Urban Agriculture

In recent decades we’ve become separated from the food that sustains us. Our food is prepared by hands other than our own; it’s then served to us in boxes, in bags, in plastic containers. Millions of people in America alone have limited or no access to real, fresh, healthy produce.

Small farms and gardens are sprouting up in cities and suburbs around the country, as one of the solutions to this problem. Urban and suburban agriculture reconnects us to our food, and ensures a delicious, healthy meal for our citizens.

You can grow food anywhere: in your backyard, on your windowsill, on your rooftop, or in your community. Grow guides present tips and techniques of urban agriculture, so that you can feed yourself, your family, and your community.
