The Importance Of Urban Farming In Today’s Society

Two fast growing trends among UK homeowners include urban farming and microgreens. Now, many of us know what microgreens are, the tiny sprouts of certain plants such as rocket, radish, and others. And we know that microgreens are incredibly delicious when added to salads, pastas and, of course, a breakfast omelet. But microgreens are much more than a delicious addition to our healthy diets, they are also very nutritious. In fact, microgreens have more nutrients per volume than just about any other vegetable. Now, that’s saying a lot.

But, what about urban farming? What is it and can you really grow crops with limited space in the city? Urban farming is just that, growing crops, albeit smaller than usual, in the city in whatever space you have. From rooftop and balcony gardens, to back yard, container, even soil free gardens inside your home, there is a wide range of ways that homeowners are growing healthy, delicious produce for their families.

Now, with all of this talk about urban farming and microgreens, let’s take a look at a company that has made it its mission to make urban farming a reality for many homeowners throughout the UK, even if they don’t have a green thumb.
