Urban farming is an old, old story. Usually it starts to be restricted when
the first ordinances about banning ruminant farm animals begins. Once there is
a surplus, community gardeners share it or sell it. My garden sells honey one
or twice a year, other sell produce of all kinds.
Now, it is hard for a volunteer community garden to compete with a truck
farrm, but if the offerings are specialized - a particular kind of pepper,
heirloom tomato, preserves made by a communtiy gardener, then there's an interesting
niche market - But to expect a community gardener to be able to support
herslef from her garden plot? Not particulalry wise.
