Small Scale and Urban Food Production

Geoff Lawton of the Permaculture Institute of Australia talks about a chicken lot design for cyclic chicken tractoring while another garden grows, and city agriculture production.

"At present one of the things that's really in surplus in our cities is organic matter. We have lots of it. And the thing about our cities are that they're full of hardware that runs off water. and they're a great micro-climate. There's lots of thermal mass that gains heat. And there's lots of sheltering from wind. So you can design city production. Urban agriculture and perimeter urban agriculture is much more productive than open space agriculture. So it's something that we're going to see more of."
