Many of you probably get the newsletter each week from the National Council for Ag Ed, but if not, you may find the following article from National Geographic on the growth of urban agriculture interesting. It would be a great resource to use in Basic Ag to show that agriculture's scope goes well beyond traditional farming.


Have a great rest of the week!
