From growing a single pot of herbs in the windowsill of a studio apartment to growing rows of crops in place of a front lawn, more and more city-dwellers are producing their own food. Although we can't always grow as much as people with more land, urban farmers learn to make the most of the conditions we have and produce delicious, healthy food rather than depend on the supermarket. In this article, I'll take you on a tour of my urban farm and talk a bit about the whys and hows of growing food in the city.

Name: Carol Noel
Hawaii (near Hilo)
It's all about choices.
We live on 12 acres about 20 miles from a small town, but I feel I qualify for urban farming=I am challenged by space because we live on an old lava flow and have NO soil, so my only way to grow vegies is in containers or raised beds. Isn't that what urban farming is?

I am really impressed with the folks on this cubit and their experiences. Anyone growing in small spaces / conainers...please come join....
Leap. The net will appear.
