The Urban Farmer Handbook: Getting Started

Because those who are a little confused by the term 'urban agriculture', I think it is only just and wise to apply you a definition to body of work with. For the purposes of this article, city-born agriculture:

Practise cultivation, processing and distribution of food in the village autour, a town or city.

There has nothing new about the practice. Has been about since ancient Egyptian Empire, Greece and Rome, merely we have seen the return of that recently due to hardscrabble economical checks. More people look at available resources and find new ways so that they work for them.

Urban agriculture is directly linked to the sustainable lifestyle and slogan that refers to:

Sustainable living "is essentially the application of choice of mode of sustainable living and decision. Express a concept for sustainable living does that mean in terms of the triple bottom line that has need of this meeting, ecological and societal and without prejudice to economic factors for futurity generations. »

In practice, farmers use urban resources at their disposal, and their families.

Let me give you an deterrent example. Apart from aesthetics, what is a good garden? There's no practical reason are grounds. Can you eat, then why have it? Urban farms look in the garden and sees to the rank of carrots and tomatoes. Urban farms look into these azaleas along the English of the House and find Blueberry plants. Considers that the patch of 200 square feet of weeds of urban farms and chicken coop.

Let me guide you done the process of using us when we started first, so we can hash out some details.
