Episode 808 - Urban Farming addthis
Urban Farming
When you think of farms, you usually think of rural landscapes. Travel to Albuquerque, New Mexico, and you’ll find a large urban farm catering to the needs of city residents. The project is the work of Albuquerque’s Open Space Division. Their Rio Grande Community Farm provides the space for city residents to grow some of their own food.

The roar of nearby traffic reminds people that this is truly an urban farm. It welcomes a group of ten to 15 young people learning farming skills. They spend a year on the farm helping residents plant, care for, and bring in their crops.
