As our world becomes increasingly defined by urban structures, exploring urban agriculture to encourage greener living is something essential for the quality of city life. From beekeeping in rooftops to underground mushroom farms, this book explores the fascinating and diverse world of urban agriculture, giving you the opportunity to learn from the best practices and get your hands dirty, be it in your balcony, a community garden, or even starting a business around it. Equipped with the right know-how and the proper tools for growth, we are well on our way to ensuring our cities grow in a healthy direction. Grow better, eat better, and make the world better!
