Healthy Eating Through Urban Farming

In a day and age where we don’t quite know where our food is coming from or how it is treated (chemicals and fertilizers), planting your own vegetable garden gives you more control. By planting your own produce, you will know exactly where it is coming from and how it is grown, ensuring that you have the healthiest products for you and your family. The product you are left with from your garden is far superior to what is in the grocery store! 


Advantages of Urban Farming


There are several advantages of growing an urban farm. They are: 


1. Produces Healthy Food: You can grow fresh and
healthy fruits and vegetables on your own. You need not worry about induced pesticides or other harmful artificial substances used to grow food.

2. Increases Food Security: Urban farming enhances food
security. This is one of the major concerns for families across the country. Grow your own farm and eliminate the fear. 


3. A Sense of Belonging: When you grow your farm, you
will be closely associated with it. It also helps in fostering a sense of
belonging in an urban setting.

4. Right Use of Land: You might be growing the farm
within limited space, but know that you are making the right use of the available space. You even learn about various farming and gardening techniques while growing.
