The Impact of Urban Farming in New York

The Impact of Urban Farming in New York | Community Partnerships for Promoting Health and Wellness | Scoop.it

Urban farming is a sustainability movement that is giving new purpose to rooftops, patios and unused space. The beauty of urban farming is that it not only produces an abundance of organic, locally grown food, but also has a social, economic and communal impact.

 

Urban farming has the potential to become a global green evolution, improving the economy, sustainability and health of our urban communities. From North Minneapolis and Milwaukee to Cairo and Montreal, urban farms and gardens are sprouting up as a solution to maximize the use of natural resources such as solar energy, advocating healthy lifestyles and even teaching job skills. 

From rooftop-grown organic herbs to brownstone backyard tomato plants, urban farming is creating green utopias in otherwise unused or abandoned metropolitan spaces.

 

Read further for more information on urban farming as an agricultural revolution, aiding the change of global urban landscapes.

Rooftop spaces in New York are starting to become used for urban farming and are resulting in many benefits. They maximize the use of space in the city, and help support healthy lifestyles within the city. They also provide another source of income for some of the many people that live in it, boosting the economy.
