    Food and the City PDF Ü Food and Epub / ñ Kindle franzbielmeier.de food free, city epub, Food and book, Food and the City KindleI stumbled upon Food and the City in my local library in the new book section After reading it I actually felt inspired and hopeful instead of my usually we're all going to hell in a handbasket This book illustrates the way forward for towns and cities and their inhabitants creating a 'post industrial urban edible landscape' where people grow their own food in backyards rooftops community gardens city owned lands CSA farms and empty factories left to rot because it cost too much to tear them downThe author takes you all over the world with descriptive language that makes you feel like you are standing right along side her places like London

    Food and the City PDF Ü Food and Epub / ñ Kindle franzbielmeier.de food free, city epub, Food and book, Food and the City KindleWhere is my hoe? I need it now I want to rush out into the streets and start planting beans tomatoes apple trees Literally right on the streetThat is the conversation I had going on in my head after finishing this book Cockrall King lays out her new food revolution theory It's not an instruction manual or a slogan filled rant but a well researched look at examples of urban agriculture throughout the world and why it may be essential in the future It was an eye opening look at all of the different ways we can grow food not just on a farm outside of the city limits For a backyard gardener like myself this was inspiringJennifer's argument throughout the book was easy to follow and pretty common sense that right now our food system is fueled by oil fertilizers tractors distribution etc but if we are at 'peak' oil what will we have to do in the future? When oil becomes expen

    Food and the City PDF Ü Food and Epub / ñ Kindle franzbielmeier.de food free, city epub, Food and book, Food and the City KindleThis was a really interesting book that looked at the increase in urban farming from backyard and patio gardens to community gardens and even renovating abandoned buildings and creating vertical farms in the middle of a major city The first section of the book looks at our industrialized food system and how it's failing then a few major cities that are trend setters when it comes to urban farming are highlighted If nothing else I think this book shows that you really can grow a lot of food almost anywhere From my personal experience we grew a lot of food utilizing 3 small raised beds behind our townhouse and I know we could have done even with containers in addition to the beds This book is a must read for any city dweller who thinks growing a significant percentage of their own food is out of reachSome uotes I really likedWithin the grocery store we have the illusion of choice Fort
