Resources Are Available For Those Interested In Farming In The City

February 17, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Urban farming is catching on all over the country, as people from all walks of life grow food on rooftops, balconies, window sills, etc. To promote the trend and provide resources for novice and experienced urban gardeners, Food Tank  compiled a list of organizations, conferences, videos, and books dedicated to the subject. The City Chicken Project, for example, teaches city dwellers how to keep chickens that provide not only eggs, but also soil aeration and fertilizer. Two organizations in Chicago offer urban beekeeping classes. And “The Urban Farm Handbook” provides instruction for the novice urban farmer and includes “a wealth of relevant topics”.
