Learning From the Ground Up: Teaching Sustainable Organic Urban Agriculture
Farming in the City
As part of its mission, City Farm provides education to visiting school groups and others interested in sustainable organic urban agriculture. In the past, City Farm also has hosted a picnic for the American Community Gardening Association and a dinner for the Slow Food organization. For some urban dwellers, it’s an enlightening experience to learn how food grows.
“We also teach classes to grade-school students on botany, ecology, gardening and global food,” Wilson says. “In addition, we’ve had about 50 interns from the Cabrini-Green housing project over the last few years.”
