THE URBAN FARMING™ COEXISTENCE MODEL
Urban Redevelopment: Urban Farming™ is a moveable feast and recognizes the importance of urban redevelopment, particularly within impoverished urban areas. It is important for urban agriculture to coexist with urban redevelopment in order to foster business growth and job creation.
WHAT URBAN FARMING DOES IN URBAN REDEVELOPMENT:
- Urban Farming™ moves the gardens when developers need to develop on that space! We also encourage developers to consider incorporating Urban Farming Edible Walls™ into their new development.
- The Urban Farming Edible Walls™ can cut down on 60% of their heating and cooling costs, give them LEEDS certification points, cut down on rainwater runoff in the city and cut down on the urban heat index- ALL THE WHILE HELPING TO FEED the community where they are about to move into!
