In this video by Nourish, Bryant discusses the rise of urban farming, it’s importance for building communities, engaging young people and bringing fresh homegrown food to the table. Urban farming and Grow Your Own is big this side the pond too with allotments available in all cities. So get your gardening boots on, grow something green and organic and enjoy!
