Urban Farming, the practice of growing food inside a city, can play a significant role in a cities food system. Food is one of the 3 necessities for human life: air, water, food. As the population continue to grow rapidly and move into the cities. This increasing urban population demands energy, water, resources and food that are produced and transported from rural areas in unsustainable ways. We are losing our agricultural landscapes worldwide due to urban sprawl and industries. Urban farming has become a means to increase grown food and a way of reintroducing the public to the many aspects of food that we has been lost as a culture. What food grows regionally and seasonally are all important lessons and make a better informed urban consumer. Urban farming reduces the distance the organic food has to travel before reaching the mouth of the urbanite.
