A central focus of the contemporary food movement is the “good food gap,” the distance between people's ability to procure and eat good food and people’s ability to make a livelihood growing and preparing good food (see Lauren Baker's TEDx talk on 10 Good Food Ideas).
Urban agriculture—basically, the growing of food near where people live—has been a significant strategy for addressing that gap for many people. Although agriculture has often been discouraged in cities for many reasons, the past few decades have seen a resurgence in efforts to embrace food production in cities.
This field guide to urban agriculture explores some of the scope of urban agriculture, focusing particularly on some examples that communities collaborating on this guide have shared.
Please feel free to comment on the next steps that should be taken with this learning module as it gets regenerated by ongoing interactions with it! Description: The Urban Farming learning module is a collection of resources designed to help interested individuals learn about getting involved in urban farming. Whether it’s volunteering some time on a local urban farm, planning the beginning of a new urban farm, or simply becoming more educated about the prospects and benefits of urban farming, this module can help.
Target Audience: This module is intended for individuals currently connected to an urban farm, people excited and curious about urban farming and hoping to learn more, and community leaders who are considering the possibility of an urban farm in their community.
Elements: This module consists of a definition, a starting guide, a reports on land available for urban farming, a PBS video about urban farming, and links to current urban farms’ websites. These resources are found throughout this Scalar path.
