Urban farming refers to the practice of growing and producing food in urban or suburban areas, such as in community gardens, on rooftops, or in unused or underutilized urban spaces. Urban farming can involve a range of techniques, including traditional soil-based gardening, hydroponics, aquaponics, and vertical farming. The goal of urban farming is to increase access to fresh, healthy, and locally grown food, while also promoting community engagement, environmental sustainability, and economic development. Urban farming can also help to reduce transportation and storage costs associated with conventional food systems and can provide opportunities for education and job training.
