This will be a challenge in my county which is adjacent to the county which contains the large city. There is almost no actual farmland in my county, and almost no farmers. What little farming there is, mostly grows oats and sorghum. Now that is a restricted diet!




I immediately thought of Urban Farmer Curtis Stone. Curtis's farms are most definitely not permaculture, but they are farms, and they are urban. However, just about anything is better than the pesticide-ridden monoculture that defines the suburban lawn. The point is that there is often more land available than you would think.
