Book Description

An examination of city dwellers growing their own food within urban environments Urban Farms provides in-depth profiles of 16 innovative farms located in major metropolitan areas, each operated by passionate individuals and communities committed to growing their own fruit and vegetables and raising animals. In addition to stories about the farms and their owners, sidebars provide basic how-to tips for such activities as composting, canning, beekeeping and growing vegetables. A burgeoning movement that is fast catching on, urban farming taps into many touchstones of the modern city dweller, including environmental awareness, the foodie culture, localism, distrust of mass-production farming practices and the DIY approach to modern everyday life.
