Why urban farming is changing the future of agriculture

Why urban farming is changing the future of agriculture | Urban and Master Planning | Scoop.it
The planet is growing more food than ever, and yet millions of people continue to starve worldwide. People are hungry everywhere — in the country, in the suburbs. But increasingly, one of the front lines in the war against hunger is in cities. As urban populations grow, more people find themselves in food deserts, areas with “[l]imited access to supermarkets, supercenters, grocery stores, or other sources of healthy and affordable food,” according to a report by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

New technologies are changing the equation, allowing people to grow food in places where it was previously difficult or impossible, and in quantities akin to traditional farms.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, March 10, 3:41 PM

100 years ago, the biggest trends in urbanization showed that the biggest cities in the world were also the most economically powerful cities in the world in core areas.  In the last 50 years, the most obvious change has been the remarkable growth in of the world’s largest cities in the developing world.   

Questions to Ponder: Why has there been such spectacular growth of megacities, especially in the developing world?  How is this map ranking global cities different from a list of the world’s largest cities?  What regional patterns do exist in the 25 most economically powerful cities in the world?  What are the implications of these patterns?

C'est excellent. Mais ça c'est sans compter aussi avec les espaces de parkings sous-terrains qui vont progressivement se libérer au grain de la disparition des véhicules en centre-ville. 

 Le potentiel est juste énorme. Et en plus c'est bio, parce que dans les villes, il n'y a pas ou quasiment pas de ravageurs.
