Farms Finding "New Roots" in Cities
This article focuses on the New Roots farm in San Diego which sits on 2.2 acres of city property and, while a work in progress will be instrumental in providing produce for nearby residents. Many of those working on New Roots have come to the U.S. to escape war and unrest in their home countries, where they were farmers.
Urban farms are just part of the changes to the food system. Other steps include farmers' markets accepting food stamps.
