I think some readers may be asking a little too much from this nicely put together coffee table book The audience is very clearly a popular audience with very little agricultural knowledge I think it s about showing people what s out there and a variety of ways urban farms can contribute to the urban community It s a feel good book, not a hardcore farming manual If you go in knowing that s what you re in for, you ll probably enjoy it It s a feel good coffee table book meant to get you thinking [...]

Primarily an inspirational book, and not a how to one, the book was fairly well written and included lots of small details and pictures It did have some cross referencing that could get confusing Each story had a section at the end that was a basic, brief how to, enough to get a person started and give them a background to know what to look up if s he needed details I found the book interesting and fairly enjoyable It s nice to see what others are doing and read stories of success and hope.

overall, this book presents twelve interesting case studies of urban and peri urban agriculture projects across the country, complete with beautifully composed photographs it certainly got me fantasizing about vacant lots and rooftops maybe i should just let it be interesting and not dissect its underlying assumptions jk, lole exotification of immigrants and people of color throughout was a little off putting, but after reading novella carpenter s farm city, the threshold for jeez, this is kinda [...]

Alright, so This isn t a book that tells you how to go about urban farming in a step by step process, though it will give you major tips on how to get something started in your community Mostly this is an experience that lets you see what s been going on across the United States in the last few years, and really makes you feel good about these efforts It makes you feel hopeful And I think that s really what this book is all about getting people to feel like it s completely possible to get a proj [...]

Disappointed Granted the main reason I decided to read this book was because Annie Novak is on the cover and I have a little bit of a young farmer crush on her at the moment so maybe I was setting my expectations a little too high Or maybe it s because I ve read Farm Together Now by Amy Franceschini et al which also profiles movers and shakers in agriculture complete with pretty pictures but does so in a much profound, detailed and inspiring way Maybe I m not the target audience for Hanson and [...]

A beautiful book that is both inspiring and informative These brief descriptions of successful urban farming projects accompanied by stunning photos stimulate a lot of dreams ideas I particularly like the format Each project has 6 10 pages of photos and explanations, talking about how the project became what it is, how it is run, what is unique or exciting about each project The descriptions are followed by a couple of pages that talk about how to tap into a specific aspect of something that gro [...]

I had the good fortune to meet Edwin Marty on the weekend that the book arrived in his hands He went outside and got me a copy of it which I then shared with 2 3 community gardeners immediately They were inspired by it as was I Many of our first tier front line activists around the country are profiled in this book so I m thrilled to have it as a record of the excellent work being done in food systems.Get a copy for your local library.

I ve known Edwin Marty for several years, so I could be biased I am also preparing for an urban agriculture and community gardening charrette and found a lot of inspiration in the first several chapters One thing I would have liked to know is how, mechanically, did they get all the soil on the roof of that garden in Brooklyn Lastly, Edwin added a funny note when he signed my copy so now it goes on the Autographed Books pile, which is nice.

Inspiring page turner It s easy to feel like the problems facing our society are too big to address apathy, helplessness or fatalism are the natural reactions This book documents the proof that change is not only possible but that it is happening all over the country by people from all walks of life.

This book is an excellent resource for anyone who is interested in starting a community farm, urban garden, or getting involved with their community s access to healthy, local food.

A bit superficial Not enough nitty gritty or specific techniques they picked up at these farms Good coffee table book inspirational, bad practical guide.
