What started as an experiment has become a social movement. Words like fish farming, chicken coop and alternative energy don't normally evoke an image of the inner city. The Urban Farming Guys are changing all of that by working from the inside out to build a united community, improve education, create jobs and lower crime in the inner city of Kansas City.

    Seeing people of all ages, races, skills and background come together, with very little money, to make a difference. And they do. In ways that help neighborhoods and nations. It's beautiful to see . . . and truly encouraging and inspiring!

    All of it--the community, the goals, and all the permaculture principles being used to create a green , sustainable world--fuel, food, livestock, compost--in limited space. Reminds me of the videos "Permaculture: The Growing Edge" by Starhawk and Donna Read and "The Power of Community: How Cuba survived Peak Oil" by Faith Morgan, et al.

    I have some experience in hydroponic growing and have carried dream for some time to have a open source food supply for our community. I live in a extremely conservative city where new ideas are viewed with suspicion how ever this is a project that might gather interest. I live in HotSprings,Arkansas and wonder if there are any local folks that might communicate

  • pnwsuzie

    It's like a Peace Corps offering for an inner city in the US. I LOVE that you are living in the inner city you hope to change for the better, not just coming in from the outside and trying to teach. I'm inspired to do more for the greater good with gardening. Thank you for sharing this.
