Farming in cities and small spaces is becoming increasingly popular, but it has its challenges. City Farming addresses the problems the urban farmer might face and turns them into creative solutions. It assists the new grower to gain expert understanding of how to create a production urban farm, as well as helping established farmers to discover new ways to bring their space into greater harmony and production. Also covered are integrated approaches that bring together the whole farming system in a small space to produce high yields with minimal energy and effort.

    A jam-packed, yet easy to use, resource for gardeners. Especially helpful for the Desert Southwest, but lots of great information for any gardening region! This book is written by Kari Spencer who also teaches Growing Foods The Basics through Urban Farm U.
