A recent article on CNN chronicles the growth of "urban farming," growing significant amounts of food in cities. What's unique about this piece is its focus on African-American communities, and how urban farming has empowered those with the least resources to grow their own food.
What I find so exciting about this is the ability for people, even those living in densely populated areas that are nowhere near "farmland," to provide healthy food for themselves. Community farms and gardens level the playing field economically, putting fresh, seasonal, local produce on kitchen tables for everywhere.
I'm also just thrilled to see the press that local, sustainable, "real" food is getting these days. Seems that everywhere I turn, some aspect of farming, sustainability, and food systems issues is making it through to the mainstream media. Yes!
