NEW YORK FARM CITY:
We all know urban farming is really taking root (*ahem*) in many places like Chicago, San Francisco, and New York. Check out this video about urban farmers in NYC showing a bit of what they do, the movements and organizations they’re a part of, and where the food goes once it leaves the rooftop.
We also have lots of urban farms in the UK, for instance London has 10 at least and their great, but there is also a new initiative called the Farmshop in Hackney.
Its uses aquaponics (a sustainable food growing method using fish, water and plants), has chickens on the roof and occupys a former retail shop. Its great as they host social activities and food tasting sessions as well as a cafe. Its worked great here as its been used to overcome the empty shop problems on one of our inner city high streets.
