Urban Farms provides in-depth profiles of approximately 20 established and emerging urban farm leaders across America, from Brooklyn to LA. The types of farms featured encompass a full spectrum of large, organised community farms to individuals growing their own food for personal consumption. The farms are located within city limits and all raise not only vegetables but animals; such as bees, chickens, rabbits and goats. Encouraging ideas from tomatoes grown on fire escapes to lettuce planted on the White House lawn, city-dwellers are taking an increasing interest not only in eating local food, but also in growing it. The reasons for this upsurge are numerous and they encompass many important cultural touchstones of the movement; environmental awareness, diet-related health concerns, the DIY movement, localism and a desire to live more frugally. It's easy to imagine a more self-sufficient, sustainable future by looking at the many farms, of which this book provides a sampling of. Studying these pockets of urban agriculture will help empower and inspire readers of all walks of life and race to become part of transforming their cities and growing their own food.
