Urban Gardens Provide More Than Food
There is tremendous potential for people of all types to grow their own organic foods. Particularly unemployed people in urban areas. Doing so is healthful for individuals and the Earth. In particular it promotes relocalization of agriculture which is more sustainable in the long term.
Urban Gardens Provide More than Just Food
The community gardens initially created to help confront the effects of the late 2001 economic collapse in Argentina have now “grown” into a government-run urban agriculture programme, which provides unemployed workers with much more than just food for their families' tables. Some 7,000 people who were out of work before entering the programme have joined forces to clear the land, plant and harvest vegetables, and sell their produce in street market stalls.
