Urban Farming Consultant

ContributorHumanitarianMaker

The world of urban agriculture is sprouting up all around the world. High rises in Southeast Asia are ironically full of crops, and American urban centers like Detroit are investing in urban farming in the wake of industrial hardships this century.

The reasons? As cities increasingly comprise the world's majority population, questions of ethical food production are on the rise — whether they relate to animal rights, climate change, or monopolization of the food industry by a scant few conglomerates.

Urban farming consultants help advise businesses and individuals who want to participate in sustainable farming practices on their property. They may be teaching urbanites how to stick their hands back in the dirt, but there's also a high degree of technological and engineering know-how involved when we're talking about how to effectively farm from an apartment garden bed or the vacant floor of an office building.
