How are urban farms the answer to growing a sustainable city?
Urban farms are providing solutions to a myriad of urban ills. Such as blighted vacant lots, food insecurity, stormwater runoff, and declining neighborhoods. Over 50% of the world's population live in cities. Our city dwellers are having increased difficulty accessing fresh healthy foods, bringing high rates of malnutrition and obesity. With that comes increased health disparities. Including increased rates of diabetes, heart disease, and cancers.
