Five Borough Farm: Seeding the Future of Urban Agriculture in New York City Urban agriculture is booming in New York City, with more than 700 food-producing urban farms and gardens citywide. This ambitious project, by the Design Trust for Public Space in partnership with Added Value, seeks to document the scope of existing agricultural activity, and to assess its benefits beyond the production of food. With an eye toward public policy, this book envisions a future for these agricultural sites at the center of civic life.
