15% of the world’s food is grown in urban areas. And there are 800 million people currently involved in urban agriculture around the world, growing food for more than 3.4 billion people living in towns and cities. That’s a lot of food coming out of small plots, allotments, and from balconies, window boxes and city gardens. And with the added advantage of practically zero food miles and the knowledge of how the food has been grown, it offers a way for those who want to choose fresh and organic to access good food at affordable prices.
Urban farming is more than just a gardening club. It is growing into a movement with a global community of people joined together through shared ideals and a way to offer practical support – from gardening tips and advice through to healthy recipe ideas.
