Urban Agriculture is Necessary
According to an article published in the September-October 2013 issue of the Journal of Environmental Quality, it is becoming more commonplace for the best restaurants to farm their own produce and pick it the same day it is cooked! This "urban agriculture" is taking off in many progressive cities. With this activity comes a responsibility to learn about being a farmer and pay attention to soil contaminants, water quality and availability, changes in climate and atmospheric conditions. Crop yield depends on knowing about these factors.
