I was recently interviewed for an article for the sustainable ag online hub Seedstock. Author Jenny Smiechowski writes, "It’s easy to label urban farming as the solution to serious societal problems like food deserts, economic development, and obesity. But not all urban farming is alike. Some methods are bound to be more successful, profitable, and impactful than others. The question is which ones are giving cities the “biggest bang for their buck,” so to speak, and which ones are more good for morale?" Read the rest of the article entitled: "Urban agriculture, what's really making a mark?"
