It offers inspirational advice and working examples to help you dig in and become more self-sufficient with your own food choices. Taking the local food movement to its next logical step, this fully illustrated, design-rich guide presents a cornucopia of proven ideas for: * Windowsill and container growing* Edible landscaping* Farming the commons* Community gardening from allotments to collectives and community orchards* Taking urban agriculture to the next level with creative spaces, bigger lots, and higher yields Urban Agriculture is about shaping a new food system that values people and the planet above profits.
