Middlesbrough, UK: Urban Farming

Middlesbrough, UK had 1000 residents come together for an urban farming project. After 8 months of growing their own food, 8,000 residents joined to eat the fruits of their labor! What an amazing example of community! I hope we can see more of this in the future. The more we learn and prepare, the more resilient our communities will become.

Quotes from the article:

"There's a lot of space in towns and cities that is just green desert. It's there just to look at" - Ben Reynolds

"We need to start thinking about food production being part of a city's infrastructure - like roads" - Andre Viljoen
