Community Building Through De-Centralized Farming

urban farmingDe-centralized farming is an environmentally and economically sustainable urban farming system that creates a network of secure healthy food sources of naturally grown vegetables, fruits, and eggs, while providing local jobs and vocational training in the sustainable agricultural industry.

Varieties of local crops are grown in sequence to be harvested each week for the community being served.  Food is available to be picked up by the consumer at designated hubs or at the garden. Therefore the farmer has no transportation or refrigeration needed for distribution.

The farm scale is small so it is easy to manage in an all-natural method of irrigation, fertilization, and pest control, no fossil fuels are needed.  The local community served can volunteer and learn how to farm. The farmer will hold seminars on how to grow, handle and cook the food.
