Silty Loam looks at all the different ways food can be grown in an urban environment, and why one might want to. Today, agriculture largely is practiced in isolation from the places where the majority of the population lives and works, and there is very little direct engagement of people with the land that provides the means for their survival. Rural and urban are perceived as polar opposites, in similar kinds of ways that nature and manmade are held as separate concepts. Silty Loam looks at all the different ways city residents have pushed back against this, including community gardens, community land trusts, and rooftop gardens.
