Access to healthy food in urban areas can be difficult for some. For others a desire to have a more direct connection with the food they eat beyond just shopping in a grocery store has them getting creative and going as local as it gets. Urban agriculture has many benefits, including bringing a community together.
In today's episode I talked with Jared Tharp. Jared served for two years in Senegal with the Peace Corps working as an Urban Agriculture Specialist. Now living in Oakland he continues to be involved with urban agriculture at local Funktown Farm.
