Urban Farming: Healthy Food Comes to the People
Urban farming methods like aquaponics and hydroponics make agriculture an option in areas that are crowded and/or polluted. The Elyria-Swansea community, just north of downtown Denver, is officially classified as a food desert and the most polluted zip code in Colorado. The GrowHaus is using hydro-agriculture to provide healthy food for this area in need.
With the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations forecasting urban areas to account for 70 percent of the world population in 2050, ask yourself, where is your food going to come from?
