INDOOR GARDENING : URBAN GARDENING: Start Your Own Urban Farm Start Your Own Urban Farm Written by Oluwatomi Olatoye Tuesday, 14 September 2010 Nigerian Tribune http://tribune.com.ng/index.php/ wealth-creation-thru-agric/10987-start-your-own-urban-farm A shorter URL for the above link: http://tinyurl.com/25g436qUrban agric-ulture is the practice of cultivating, processing and distributing food in, or around (peri-urban), a village, town or city. Urban agriculture in addition can also involve animal husbandry, aquaculture, agro-forestry and horticulture. These activities also occur in peri-urban areas as well.
Urban farming is generally practised for income-earning or food-producing activities, though in some communities the main impetus is recreation and relaxation. Urban agriculture contributes to food security and food safety in two ways: First, it increases the amount of food available to people living in cities; and, second, it allows fresh vegetables and fruits and meat products to be made available to urban consumers. A common and efficient form of urban agriculture is the biointensive method. Because urban agriculture promotes energy-saving local food production, urban and peri-urban agriculture are generally seen as sustainable practices. Social benefits that have emerged from urban agricultural practices are: better health and nutrition, increased income, employment, food security within the household, and community social life. Urban farms can be seen as a means of improving the livelihood of people living in and around cities.
Urban agricultural facts 50 per cent of the worlds population lives in cities.800 million people are involved in urban agriculture world-wide and contribute to feeding urban residents.
