City Farm

Posted by WMHT Web Editor on

Everyone knows that foods like vegetables, grains, meat and fruits are grown or raised on farms. Most of us, however, get our food from a grocery store rather than from a garden or farm. If a refrigerator or supermarket is our main experience of food, then it’s easy to think that food is always plentiful and instantly available.

Urban gardening—in backyard gardens, small-scale community gardens, and larger-scale urban farms—undercuts this common misconception, helping people realize that food takes time, care and resources to produce.

In this interactive science game from WGBH, your class will learn about sustainable practices by growing crops, protecting them against unforeseen problems and determining how best to conserve resources. LAUNCH: http://to.pbs.org/14dK9Ed
