Jennifer Cockrall-King visited a dozen cities in five countries at the forefront of incorporating food production into their urban spaces to get a wide-angled look at this growing movement. This global garden-hopping slideshow and talk looks at community gardens and urban beekeeping in Paris, rooftop veggies and urban wine in London, commercial coop urban farms in Havana, urban fruit rescue outfits in Toronto, SPIN farming in Kelowna, and the world’s first vertical farm in Chicago, among others.
