With seven billion mouths to feed, human agriculture is exerting a tremendous toll on the planet. The challenges include water usage, pollution and the loss of habitat for the native ecosystem.

More people around the world see urban farming as a way to produce the food they need locally and cut down on the negative effects of transporting food long distances. Consumers are also to eat in season.

Rooftop and patio gardens are an example of growing food in an urban environment.
