The Urban Farming Guys

logoThe Urban Farming Guys have posted video’s of their recent trip to India.

If your into sustainability, aquaponics or community projects, I would definitely recommend having a look.

It is inspirational stuff, makes me look forward to, all the more, the community projects I would like to explore, once McNicklebee farm and my business plans are all up and running.

 

For those of you who would like to know more about the Urban Farming Guys, take a look at their web page here and their Youtube channel here.

The work of others like this really inspires me and I look forward to seeing what they will do next.

To wet your appetite, a little more info about “The Urban Farming Guys”.

Who are we…..

We are the urban experiment…

We are the seed that died and went into the ground.  We are about 20 families who have purposefully uprooted from out of our comfortable suburban homes and moved into one of the worst neighborhoods in Kansas City.  We each bought homes within a 5 block radius of each other and we put down our stake for the sake of the youth and the poor. What is going to happen to us … who knows, but this is certainly not a novelty idea, and please don’t try it yourselves without thinking it through.  We are a band of pioneers.  We don’t claim this is even a good idea…. it is our lives.  We are cultivating the life of the innercity. The Police helicopter is our favorite bird.  Neighborhood meetings are our drama.  Dropping crime stats are our touchdown cheer.  Just to see people walking their dogs around the block again is a sign of good things to come. Stay tuned, lots of adventure to come
