Research on urban farming practices

FarmHack is a community for those who embrace the long-standing farm traditions of tinkering, inventing, fabricating, tweaking, and improving things that break

FarmHack could introduce new ideas or possibilities for urban farming in Mediamatic.
Cityplot is an urban farming collective that supports people in growing their own organic food - on balconies, on windowsills, in gardens, on empty lots, and along the street!
