I am all for organic food! And I hope you are too. Now, with all these GM (genetically modified), barely tested, laboratory produced food they are bombing us with it is getting more and more difficult to be sure if the food we buy is GM or is it organic.
OK. Now the good news! The good news is, believe it or not, you can grow your own food. ;P Even in the city. Even on your own balcony. Ladies and gentleman, I proudly present you
Now, let’s see how Wikipedia defines urban agriculture: “Urban agriculture is the practice of cultivating, processing and distributing food in, or around, a village, town or city.” So, what’s happening, generally, is that people, communities in the cities are organizing themselves, occupying building tops or unused public space to produce healthy organic food for themselves.
And this is a worldwide movement too. Chicago, NY, Amsterdam, UK, China, Cuba (has more than 33000 urban farms), Canada (preparing laws to help commercial urban farming) … it’s coming up everywhere and I bet that there is a similar community where you live too or if there isn’t, you can still start your own garden on your own balcony. If you live in the city, fresh and affordable food is almost impossible. Almost, because, if you grow it your self, then, suddenly it becomes possible.
Now, what does it all have to do with graphics and design? I hear you ask. Well, a lot. Although I moved from the city to live in the country so for me it is not a problem, I totally want to help and support organic food production in the cities.
So, for this post I prepared a flyer which promotes an urban farming workshop.
“Even if you live in the city and have nothing more than a balcony
You too can eat fresh and healthy, organic food

You don’t need to worry about the copyrights (everyone’s talking about ACTA these days and I plan on to dedicating a post to this topic too) because the images are mine, copy is mine and I give it all away for free.
