In light of our current economic turmoil going-green is rooting out the red tape as conscientous local governments realize the benefits of urban farms on public property.

Today the AP released a story that details the explosive growth of community agriculture and volunteer farms that is occurring across urban areas of the United States.

The image above is from the historic and pioneering Burr's Berry Farm in South Dade (12741 SW 216th St), a commercial enterprise. The urban farms that are sprouting up are not for profit, provide produce for local food pantries, and feed their volunteers with the fruits (and vegetables) of their labor.

LocalHarvest.org will tell you where to find these farms and give you the contact info to get involved yourself. Click here to start your research.
