If eating real, unprocessed food has become old hat to you at this point, it’s easy to forget that for a lot of folks eating this way can seem out of reach and downright difficult. That’s especially true for families on fixed incomes living in food deserts – areas without easy access to grocery stores that sell fresh food.

Urban farming advocates like Will Allen and the nonprofit he works with called Growing Power are looking to change that by building farms in cities that grow lots of food in sometimes not a lot of space. Allen wrote a book on his urban farming efforts: The Good Food Revolution, and on Tuesday night he talked to Stephen Colbert about urban farming, food deserts, and kohlrabi. Check it out!
