From rooftop beekeeping to underground mushroom farms, the new photo-driven book Urban Farmers (Text by Mónica R. Goya and photos and editing by Valery Rizzo, gestalten, 2021) explores what farming looks like today in cities around the world. Writer Mónica R. Goya takes us through her investigation of inner-city agriculture, sharing stories of harvesting precious saffron on a farm in Paris as well as educational gardens in unlikely places. We ask how urban gardening can help us all become entangled in a food web deeply connected to other organisms in a city. Urban Farmers is available today. Photographer Valery Rizzo was the book’s creator and co-editor. The book features essays by urban farmers—many of whom work in New York City!
