Format: Paperback
Lorraine Johnson has written an engaging, funny book about growing food in the city. My favourite chapter was about urban chickens; while I am personally not planning to start a city chicken farm any time soon, her advice is simple and easy to follow. And her description of all the things her three hens did made me smile.

This book made me want to go out and garden. Not only does this book give you an idea of the benefits of farming where ever you are, but it gives a lot of great advice about how you can start. I highly recommend this read.
Urban Farming in the City Jan. 15 2012
By Kate Copsey - Published on
Format: Paperback
City Farmer is a book about taking unused space and using it for growing food. The concept is simple but as Lorraine points out the need for fresh vegetables and food is most critical in the inner city and depressed urban areas and this can be eased by creative use of vacant lots, rooftops and other surfaces. Using the example of her `tomato farm' which consisted of planting tomatoes in four bags of potting soil on the roof of her building we see that there are opportunities everywhere for growing healthy food.
Not only is the book filled with great information, but the resources at the back make it essential for anyone who is interesting in the topic. Guerilla gardening, foraging, animals and community garden organizations are all listed with contact information.
