Description
There are 40 million acres of lawn in North America—attractive but essentially unproductive expanses of grass that represent a significant financial and environmental cost. And yet, notes Green City Acres owner/operator Curtis Stone, these green spaces can also be seen as a tremendous source of opportunity for those who wish to enter the agricultural sector but have little usable land. Growing food in the city means that fresh crops may travel only a few blocks from field to table, making this innovative approach the next logical step in the local food movement. Based on a scalable, easily reproduced business model, Stone's illustrated manual is designed to help you learn the techniques and business strategies you need to make a living growing high-yield, high-value crops right in your own backyard (or someone else's). It explains how to take advantage of such benefits as low capital investment and overhead costs, reduced need for expensive infrastructure, and easy access to markets.
