The Five Borough Farm Data Collection Toolkit: Making the Case for Urban Farms | Recycling News Channel | OrganicStream.org | Scoop.it
The Five Borough Farm Data Collection Toolkit makes it possible to quantify and evaluate the benefits of urban agriculture across the nation.
The Organic Stream's insight:

An excellent initiative that will help urban farmers gain support and recognition from their communities and municipalities - and also give them knowledge on their own farm's performance in order to find opportunities for improvement.

With his pilgrim's staff and Panama hat, Father Godfrey Nzamujo nips up and down the paths of Songhai, the organic farm he created nearly 30 years ago as a tool against poverty and rural migration in Africa. Duration: 02:21 Video provided by AFP
The Organic Stream's insight:

Great story from Benin, Africa showing how young people are actively making a difference in their community and creating a sustainable micro economy with organic farming.  Father Godfrey Nzamujo's organic farm is greatly successful, with centres starting up in Nigeria, Sierra Leon and Nigeria.
