City Farm, Chicago, Illinois
The urban farming movement is proving that food can be grown in abandoned lots, on former highway ramps, or in the backyards of city dwellers. Moreover, food grown in the city can be used as a resource for low-income families, public schools, local farmers markets, and even high-end restaurants. Here's our intro to urban farms that are doing all these things and more across the country. Read the full guide on Marketplace.
