Farming in the City
Bucky Buckaw's Backyard Chicken Broadcast Many forms of urban agriculture have existed for thousands of years. City dwellers growing food in backyards or on window sills are essentially farming in the city.

As practical and environmentally responsible as growing food within a city can be, the art of gardening has seemingly disappeared in many urban settings. As current farming practices are proving to be unsustainable in the long-term, urban agriculture is looked upon by many as being a critical shift that needs to take place if we are to ensure a level of food security in the near and distant future.
