Farming in an urban setting with limited greenspace can be tricky, but it’s possible. Just look at what they’ve done in NYC, where urban farms are taking root in the most unlikely of places, like a barge on Staten Island, roofs in Brooklyn, and even truck beds.
Slow Food Charleston recently created their own farm in the bed of a truck, which they plan to take to area schools in order to teach kids lessons about food and farming.
Their inspiration was the film Truck Farm, made by Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, which they will screen this Thursday night at MUSC. The film is 50 minutes and shows just how Cheney made his truck farm using green-roof materials.
