Urban farming ... in North Philly?

Urban farming in Philadelphia seems to be a growing program for neighborhoods that are under served for food options.

What do I mean be under served? I mean that there are many neighborhoods in our big city that don't have access to a decent supermarket. Most of the time, they have to rely on smaller corner markets to shop for their daily/weekly/monthly food and the selection is limited. Especially in the "fresh" category.

I actually wrote a post in April 2011 about an urban farm opening in Brewerytown, and this article proves that the trend is growing.
