What could be more empowering than growing your own food and sharing it with the community around you? With our society’s fast-paced, indoor lifestyle people are seeking out farming and gardening in urban areas as a respite and way to reconnect with nature. Many people are also seeking out community gardens to support access to culturally relevant foods. Yet, this is made to be a complex and challenging situation here in the Bay Area where some of the highest property values exist. In this interview I speak with Michelle Glowa Ph.D. who researched and wrote her dissertation on the urban farming movement in the Bay Area, with a focus on land access.
