    Watch and read more here about Urban Farms: http://bit.ly/1KR4fFs Growing one's own food in urban areas can seem like a far-fetched idea. But not for one Pasadena family. The Dervaes family has been growing their own food for more than a decade. They've been at the forefront of urban homesteading by growing thousands of pounds of food annually in an average-size backyard. "I brought the country to the city rather than having to go out to the country," said Jules Dervaes, the man behind the self-sufficient farm he created with his three adult children. The Dervaes' urban homestead is sustainable and dense. They grow and raise 400 varieties of vegetables, fruits, and edible flowers that amount to about 6,000 pounds of food a year, enough to feed the family with surplus left over to sell....

The first test garden, which has been up and running for a few months as part of a commercial project called Growing Underground, backed by television chef Michel Roux junior. The "farm" itself consists of table-height beds of hemp in which salads and herbs are being grown hydroponically. That means nutrient-rich water floods the beds once a day before being slowly drained away, with no soil involved in the process. Above each bed are strips of special low energy LED lights. They use special low energy LED bulbs and an integrated hydroponics system to grow a range of micro-herbs, shoots, miniature vegetables and other delicacies to be sold to restaur...

It's got a view to die for. Rooftop Farms atop a warehouse in Brooklyn grow more than 30 varieties of organic fruits and vegetables, including heirloom tomatoes, zucchini, aubergines and green onions. While green roofs are nothing new, the sheer scale of the farm in the heart of one of the world's most congested cities is impressive. Lisa Goode is the owner of Rooftop Farms. [Lisa Goode, Owner, Rooftop Farms]: "There's layers of drainage mat and separation fabric & mdash; it's all very technical stuff that the dirt actually just goes right on top of. And then you grow stuff in the dirt. But most importantly, a green roof has great environmental benefits such as storm-water reduction, which is a huge problem in New York City. There's cooling for the building and if we can amass enough green roofs, hopefully it will help the heat island issue in New York City too." The biggest problem with designing green roofs, Goode says, is convincing developers they are a good idea. She says there is a misguided perception that they can damage a building's roof. The reverse is true, she says. Greenery can protect a roof membrane from the damaging effects of the sun and cold weather. Andy Darrell, Regional Manager of the Environmental Defense Fund, says another benefit of Rooftop Farms is that it lowers the carbon footprint caused by trucks used to transport food into the city. [Andy Darrell, Regional Manager, Environmental Defense Fund]: "About 70 percent of the air cancer risk in the air that we breathe comes from cars and trucks on our streets. So anything we can do to get trucks out of our communities and off of our crowded streets is a good thing." Rooftop Farms is managed by a team of experienced farmers and volunteers. Neighbors often stop by and local restaurants get daily deliveries of fruits, vegetables and herbs. Ben Flanner, one of the farmers, is the delivery man. Marlow and Sons, a neighborhood eatery, particularly likes the farm's heirloom tomatoes and mesclun greens. Sean Rembold is its Executive Chef. [Sean Rembold, Executive Chef]: "It is pretty amazing, when even though we can't get the volume maybe from the rooftop farm, to know that we can get fresh excellent vegetables… I could call right now — call Ben & mdash; and he would bicycle over something within the hour. So it's pretty amazing." Rooftop Farms is a pilot project. It cost $60,000 to design and build. The project's goal is to bring down costs and to build more farms like it across New York City.

The family makes roughly $20,000 just from selling their freshly grown produce. They use the money to buy staples that they can't grow like wheat, rice, and oats.

A mini-documentary on the state of urban agriculture and food security in Cape Town, South Africa. Created by Digital Media Production students at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- We need to reevaluate our relationship with food, from the way we grow it to how we consume it. It is the energy source for human civilisation, and is therefore central to the progress of humanity itself. Our current Capitalist-derived systems of food production and distribution are benefiting the affluent, while excluding nutritional access to low-income families throughout the country. We have the capabilities to provide every person on the planet with enough food and quality nutrition, but instead our systems encourages mass production of low nutritional sugar-foods, requiring unsustainable farming practices and massive food wastage. Due to unsustainable farming practices leading to soil erosion and environmental destruction, we could face a massive food crisis in the next 30 years, exacerbating the inequalities we see in developing countries today. What you can do right now: 1) Become conscious of what you eat 2) Choose quality food sources 3) Limit meat consumption 4) Buy food from trusted sources who use sustainable methods 5) Grow your own vegetables and greens at home Watch your health and energy improve, leading to positive change in all areas of your life and the planet, too. Right now it's our only home, and it's pretty damn extraordinary. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Created by Ngadi, an urban farming website providing digital guides for various urban farming solutions, including automated grow systems and organic probiotic fertilizers.

Two entrepreneurs Richard Ballard and Steven Dring have set up a 2.5 acre crop farm below the Northern Line, near Clapham North in London. The first test garden, which has been up and running for a few months as part of a commercial project called Growing Underground, backed by television chef Michel Roux junior. The "farm" itself consists of table-height beds of hemp in which salads and herbs are being grown hydroponically. That means nutrient-rich water floods the beds once a day before being slowly drained away, with no soil involved in the process. Above each bed are strips of special low energy LED lights. They use special low energy LED bulbs and an integrated hydroponics system to grow a range of micro-herbs, shoots, miniature vegetables and other delicacies to be sold to restaurants, supermarkets and wholesalers The advantage of being underground is it is insulated, so the temperature can be kept stable and the rent is considerably less than if they used on a normal warehouse in central London. The pair plan to grow a range of herbs, shoots, vegetables to sell to restaurants.
