Welcome to The Urban Farmer!
The Urban Farmer empowers individuals and communities in developing local food systems that are healthy, resilient and sustainable and that are integral to the ecology of their place. With more than half of the world’s population now living in cities, we urbanites must play a key role in ensuring our own food security while protecting and nurturing local biodiversity. The choices we make in our own backyards, including the way we feed ourselves, have tremendous implications for our own health and wellbeing and for the health and wellbeing of the planet.
Drawing from the vision and practice of permaculture, urban agriculture and organic gardening, The Urban Farmer supports the development of natural, sustainable and edible landscapes in urban and periurban areas through a range of educational, consulting, research, design and specialized landscape installation services.
