Carlee Allen's curator insight, May 17, 12:12 PM

This article talks about how city market farms are producing about 20% of the world's food. It talks about how most produce now selling in grocery stores is from urban farms, and urban farms are now  feeding 800 million people in the world. The article also mentions how developing countries are mostly participating in subsistence, but most Americans are participating in commercial agriculture, or farming for capital.

 

I found it very interesting that urban farms are now participating in feeding the world, and not just rural farms. I didn't ever realize that urban farms produced that much fruit and vegetables to help feed the rest of the world, and I find it very interesting that everyone is helping fight hunger!
