Urban soil pollutant issues, especially heavy metals, PAHs, hydrocarbons, herbi/pesticides. Being part of a close community of gardeners. Learning from others. Learning from plants that thrive in urban environments. Learning different ways to do things.
Compost building. Urban poultry raising. Food forests. Creating pesticide-free neighborhoods. Creating central resource libraries & tool banks. Identifying and setting up gardens/forests in urban food deserts.
When we get to FL :):)
We're working stiffs on Long Island, and are longtime community gardeners (CA, NJ, NY). Next year will buy property with family in St Pete. Very interested in being a part, however we can from afar, of supporting sustainable urban ag in the area.
