'Agrihoods' Produce Food Locally, Cooperatively

Urban Times reports on several 'Agrihoods' maturing all over the United States.

The Urban Times highlights twelve Agrihoods, defined as "new type of neighborhood serves up farm-to-table living in a cooperative environment".

With names such as "Agritopia" (Arizona) and "Praire Commons" (Kansas), these Community Supported Agriculture entities are sure to ignite the curiosity. Most surprising, perhaps, are some of the locations these urban and peri-urban agriculture neighborhoods are established and the extent to their planning.

Harvest Community is a great example of such planning. "An 1,150-acre master-planned, mixed-use development in Northlake, Texax," this greenfield development will preserve much of the development for sustainable farm-to-table agriculture.
