Food systems are an important part of our lives. They contribute to the environment, economy, and society.

The food system is a complex system that has a lot of connections with other systems in the world. It comprises different sectors such as food production, processing and distribution, consumption, waste management and recycling.

The sustainability of food systems is based on three pillars: economic, environmental and social sustainability. Cities can play a key role in improving these three pillars by providing sustainable urban food sources for their residents.

What are some examples of sustainable urban farming?

– Urban farming can be done on rooftops or terraces using hydroponics or aquaponics to produce fresh produce year-round without pesticides or chemicals

– Vertical farms use less space than traditional farms to grow plants indoors without sunlight – Urban farmers can also grow plants in abandoned lots or vacant spaces like parking lots

In the past decade, there has been a significant increase in the number of people who are interested in urban farming. This has led to an increase in the number of entrepreneurs who are now trying to capitalize on this trend.

 Urban farming entrepreneurs have a social responsibility to be aware of their environmental impacts and make sure that they are not harming the environment with their businesses.
