As the world's population continues to increase, and as more and more people live in urban areas and cities, the demand for safely and quickly grown food that is nutritious increases at a rate that the current farming model cannot and will not continue to sustain. This is where Urban Agriculture comes into play.
Small - Medium scale organic Urban Agriculture will be the key to a sustainable future for the human race. Jamestown Urban Farmer plans to be a part of that sustainable future by providing a platform, space, and mobilization of resources to achieve food production sustainability. Feel free to contact us to learn how you can be a part of that future!
