Visiting America's Urban Farms

Morgan Clendaniel and the good folks at Co.Exist bring us an eyeful of the best examples of the country's new crop of urban farms from a new book by Sarah Rich.

"A new book by Sarah Rich, titled simply Urban Farms, takes readers on a tour of some of the most interesting and exciting of these projects around the country. From a farm in Oakland that raises rabbits for meat to a project in New Orleans that is helping stitch back the Lower Ninth Ward through the power of agriculture, the book shows how these city-based gardens are changing the landscape of food in our cities."

Through the excerpted images and text from the book that appear in the article, you can get a taste of the pioneering produce being grown "in the middle of all the asphalt."
