INFOGRAPHIC: Grow Where You Are

Nov 5th, 2013 | By Laura Waldman

After our recent interview with Dan Susman of Growing Cities about his new documentary about urban farming, we were inspired to translate the movie’s core message—”Grow where you are!”—into a digestible guide. Whether it’s planting a windowsill garden, joining a community garden or even building a backyard chicken coop, there are numerous ways to move from relying on factory farms to growing for for yourself and your community, even in a big city.

Becoming an empowered gardener is easier than you think. With 10 million acres of front and backyards in America, and over 7,300 acres of vacant land in New York City alone, there are plenty of places to get your growing started. Check out our infographic below to learn more about the urban gardening movement, and visit to learn more about garden sharing.
