Peehu commented on Fayy - فَيّ Urban gardening solutions

Dear Maria
I really liked your vision of urban farming. I have also put up a similar vision. Would request you to visit my submission and provie your comments on it. The link for my submission is https://challenges.openideo.com/challenge/food-system-vision-prize/open-submission/cooperatively-owned-urban-farming-for-nutrition-security-and-shared-prosperity-in-a-circular-economy

In your submission, I really liked the following sentences:

"We envision a society living in solidarity and inclusion, where people with disabilities and people at risk of exclusion aren't left behind but are active in the society, in communal gardens or farms for example. People have connected again with their roots and have learned to work in the land, thus increasing solidarity and decreasing stress and individualism."

One question comes to my mind: What is your idea for making this a sustainable activity? Have you experimented on ground? If yes, what is the cost of setting up an urban farms?

I am thinking of trying out some farming oractice myself and would gain hugely if you could guide me on the same.

All the best

Peehu
