I confess, I don’t give much thought to raising food in cities. My attention is focused on covering the crops and livestock raised on the Northern Plains
Even so, I received an email promoting the 2013 Urban Agriculture Summit in Sweden. Organizers say that 80 percent of the world’s population will be living in cities by 2050, and that far more attention needs to be given to increasing food production in urban areas.
Maybe they’re right; I’m not qualified to say. This much I do know: increasing global food production is vitally important. My guess is, raising more food in cites is part of the solution.
If you’re interested in the summit, here’s the event’s website: www.urbanagriculturesummit.com.
