One of the questions I like to ask people when talking about gardening in cities is, “What problems or issues do you see with farming and gardening in cities?”
When I first started studying this subject I felt like there were no repercussions, nothing bad about urban agriculture, no reason not to garden in cities, but over time I remembered that nothing is perfect. While I believe that urban agriculture has many benefits and could make cities better places to live, below I’m going to talk about potential problems with urban agriculture.
- Polluted or contaminated soils
- Toxic chemicals
- Use of water
- Theft of produce and breaking laws to plant on some vacant lots
