Urban Agriculture

Urban agriculture, the cultivation, processing and distribution of crops within city limits, is no recent phenomenon.  Recently, there has been an upsurge in the implementation of such projects due to the increasing appeal of their associated benefits. These projects have been shown to remedy many problems found in urban areas such as urban decay, “food deserts” (limited access to nutritious food), and the impoverishment of both land and people.  Urban agriculture has been shown to transform areas into beautiful centers of productivity and community which encourage empowerment and collaboration, and stimulate the local economy.
