Urban Gardeners Who Are Making a Difference
Discover how small community gardens make a big impact.
One benefit of the urban agriculture renaissance has been an increased awareness of where our food comes from. But the farm-to-table movement is about more than putting good food on our plates—many urban farmers are creating gardens to aid food deserts, promote healthy eating habits, educate kids and connect members of the community. Urban agriculture has become a way to celebrate food and people, and it’s proof that produce can be grown just about anywhere—even on the back of a truck, as one Vancouver, British Columbia, woman discovered. She converted her flatbed into a garden that grows edibles and ornamentals. Indeed, when it comes to urban gardening, it seems the possibilities are endless.
