Why Urban Farming?
Urban farming is revolutionizing the way we live by allowing people who live in the city or small areas to enjoy bountiful crops and harvests. Becoming an urban farmer is much easier than you would initially think.
With a little bit of hard work and a touch of faith, you too can begin to enjoy homegrown fruits and veggies, farm fresh eggs, and even homemade strawberry wine!
There are many benefits of urban agriculture that we have had the pleasure to enjoy and we would love for you and your family to do so as well. If you have ever heard the popular TED Talk with Ron Finley one of the amazing things about growing your own food is the money you will save. Ron says that “growing your own food is like printing your own money,” and it is absolutely true.
Another amazing benefit of urban agriculture is the health benefits. My wife and I like to live very healthfully. We eat “paleo” so the majority of the food we eat are vegetables, vegetables, and oh yea, fruit too! Growing our own food has not only help us to live more like our primal ancestors, but also we have a greater appreciation for the food that we eat.

Urban agriculture is the practice of harvesting, processing, and distributing food in or around a urban development, city suburb, or urban city. Urban agriculture can also involve animal husbandry, aquaculture, agroforestry, Urban beekeeping, and horticulture. These activities occur in suburban locations as well.
Urban farming can reflect varying degrees of economic and societal development commonly the form of a social movement for sustainable communities, where organic and natural growers, ‘foodies,’ and ‘locavores’ form social networks established on a shared ethos of nature and local community holism.
These kinds of communities can grow when benefiting from formal institutional aid, becoming integrated into local town organizing as a ‘transition town’ movements for sustainable urban development.
In other communities food security, nutrition, and income generation are fundamental motivations for the practice. Nevertheless, even more direct access to fresh vegetables, fresh fruits, and meat products through urban agriculture can enhance food security and food healthfulness.
