Urban Farming in numbers

[HTML-557f23b4ff41561bae00021e]

Interesting study by MVRDV, The Why Factory and Stroom Den Haag.

A lot has been said (through) on Urban Farming, but many don’t consider their feasibility.

I´m not being pessimist (I grow some of my own vegetables and herbs), but I think that urban farming goes more in the direction of the last phrase of the video: “could it (urban farming) help bringing some agriculture into the cities to bring us closer to our food again?”.

Update: The same study applied to Manhattan
