Farming The City is an online tool empowering activists with the knowledge they need to support and create local food projects, initiatives, and activities.

The open source platform functions first as an aggregator. In joining the project, users will be asked to contribute information about an existing or future project in an online forum. The projects are then mapped out and differentiated by the type of project (e.g. food commerce, food community projects), while indicating pertinent information like whether or not the project is looking for volunteers. Areas with potential for use in future city farming initiatives are housed on the maps as well.
