Aya Mehra's insight:

Ok so this seems like the perfect way to escape the city. 
But does this little jungle within a jungle of industrial forms block out the noise? Does it collect insects that we dont want hanging around in my hair? Or is this just the way i am looking at it?
Any how, my primary concern is the noise. This seems like the perfect get away for people of all ages and also a place in which jobs and goals can collaborate to better the world.
 Imagine this playground throughout all four seasons and how in this one spot, people from all over the city can come together and you finally explore what makes this city so diverse and unique

BBC - Human Planet Explorer - Crop growing (pictures, video, facts & news)

BBC - Human Planet Explorer - Crop growing (pictures, video, facts & news) | A World of Oneness | Scoop.it
Not all survival skills are short-term solutions. Some require serious foresight.

About Crop growing

Before humans started farming, we were hunter-gatherers and the world population was only four million. Then, around 11,000 years ago, everything changed. In different parts of the world, all at the around the same time, our ancestors worked out how to grow cereals like rice, corn, wheat, and barley. It was the birth of crop production.

 

Of course, different crops are suited to different environments. In Central America, squash, maize, and beans were all groundbreakers while in South America it was the potato that proved most popular. On the other side of the world, in China, rice and millet put down the earliest roots and sorghum took the early lead in Africa. But no plants have been as successfully tamed as the grasses.

Despite there being around 10,000 different species of grass on the planet, just seven of them now feed around six billion people around the world. Wheat, for instance, now covers 600 million acres of land worldwide - an area twice the size of Alaska - and is just as important to a giant farm-owner in Australia as it to a subsistence farmer in Africa.

In the Simien mountains of Ethiopia, for example, farmers rely on wheat and barley for their sustenance but have so little fertile ground available that they are forced to farm the mountains’ precipitous cliff faces. But they aren’t the only ones interested in their precious harvest. Troops of Gelada baboons make raids on the crops, and it is all the local children can do to defend themselves and their all-important harvest.

Much further south, in the grasslands of Botswana, farmers go to much greater lengths to protect their crops. But then the crops here are being ravaged not by scores of hungry baboons, but by millions of red-billed quelea, the most abundant wild bird on the planet. When their huge flocks fly overhead they can take five hours to pass by, but when they land in a field they can take just minutes to eliminate it.

Faced with this winged plague, Botswanan bomb squads follow the enormous flocks to their roosts and lay explosives under their nests. Come dawn, there is nothing left but death and destruction as hundreds of trees, tens of thousands of nests, and hundreds of thousands of dead birds litter the quiet grasslands.

Despite the best attempts of the local wildlife to share in our bounty, humans have been incredibly successful as crop producers. More than half the population of the world now lives in cities, and in the last two decades alone the urban population of the developing world has grown by an average of 3 million people per week. None of this would have happened without crop production.

Since crop production usually allows people to plan ahead, settle into villages, have larger families, and create more complex societies, then the biggest mark of our success as crop growers is – paradoxically perhaps - just how many of us now live in cities
