Eco Read | Urban Farms
One thing we just can't get enough of here are books. Any and all, big or small, love em all. We have quite a few to share in the upcoming weeks, starting with this one which couldn't be more perfect as it ties in beautifully with our current issue. Penned by Sarah Rich and photographed by Matthew Benson, throughout it's 224 pages the book explores living and breathing examples of Urban Farming across the United States, each led by creative and passionate groups tackling growing their own food, including raising animals. A unique approach, the book pairs an informative 'how-to' approach with highly inspirational content and photographs. If you're interested in starting your own initiative or becoming involved in one, Urban Farm is a great place to start. For an in-depth interview with an urban farmer in Brooklyn, NYC, also see our Workplace feature on Eagle Street Farms in our current issue, Vol.2.
