    European research institute CITIES has launched Farming the City, a new online tool that seeks to encourage urban agriculture. The site is primarily focused on farming efforts in Amsterdam, but it includes case studies, interactive maps, and information on projects all over the world. In the U.S., cities like Detroit, Seattle, New York, and Los Angeles are turning to urban farming as a means of recapturing vacant land, creating jobs, and revitalizing neighborhoods. With rising food prices and obesity rates, local governments are looking to improve access to healthy, affordable food; Farming the City could be a model for cities seeking to expand urban agriculture efforts.
