Urban farming has been reimagined with Cityblooms’ lightweight, modular, hydroponic micro-farms. They call them “growbots,” and they’re remarkably cool.
We love a good example of urban farming around here! Urban farms are such a wonderful way to transform unused or blighted spaces in big cities into lush, food-producing patches of land (or rooftop, or wall!).
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!
