Take part in urban food production – how, where and why

Urban food production has always been a controversial subject, especially these days. The recent events that have resulted in high produce costs have made more and more people want to be a part of this new urban production, something that will ensure the safety and the benefits of fresh organic food.

If you don’t have a yard that you could use to plant a garden at home, contact your local municipality to find out if there are plots of land that could be used for public gardening. Also visit your local farmers’ market and ask the vendors if they know where a person could use a portion of a lot to plant and care for a garden. If you don’t have a yard, you could also scout out your neighbors and see if one of them would like to join you in planting a vegetable garden to share in the care and upkeep as well as the fresh produce. If you only have a patio and no useful yard for planting, use pots and planters. Some apartment dwellers have sought permission to use the rooftops. Self-contained planters and pots can be used for planting tomatoes, string beans, lettuce, and many small root vegetables, such as radish and onions. It is important, if you are using a rooftop, to make sure your pots and planters have something under them to prevent water from damaging the roof.
