    Our cities do need to have the ability to have both Community Gardens available for the residents to learn how to garden for their families & reduce hunger but additionally those buildings & businesses which can have gardens on their roofs should be encouraged to do so

    Urban space is often times filled with unused areas, from rooftops to vacant lots. Adding community gardening spaces to these not only helps beautify the area, but adds a unique character to the palette. While these spaces cannot replace the vast, open areas of agriculture we rely upon for our main food supply, they can and do compliment it, and compliments should always be encouraged.
