|My first copy of Urban Farm... the beginning of a love affair|
Since then, I've become an avid hunter of Urban Farm... sometimes found with a bit of luck at Chapters, but more commonly discovered while unearthing hidden, scattered copies underneath piles of 'Country Living' and 'Good Housekeeping' at obscure grocery stores. The search is over!
Urban Farm is a new breed of gardening mag, focusing on sustainable city living with practical and creative advice from real 'urban farmers' on topics ranging from growing organic vegetables and improving your composting techniques to keeping city chickens, capturing and using rainwater effectively or starting a community garden. It's seriously bad-ass, and I always recommend it to anyone who is interested in putting their backyard to better use. The only downfall has been that it's generally pretty difficult to find - but now it will drop safely at my door! Perfect!
Now, off to trick my husband into buying me a subscription for Christmas...
