What is Urban Farming?
Basically, it is growing and processing food in urban areas. Production can take place either in cities or outskirts. Plants can be grown on flowerbeds, on rooftops, on walls (vertical growing-”green walls”), indoor and others places. Urban Farming can be for personal or commercial interests with systems that suit for chosen places.
Green In The City – An urban farming complex on Dizengoff Center’s rooftop
Few months after winter 2015, Green in the City (Yarok Bair) was created – a joint venture between LivinGreen Company as pioneer in Hydroponics & Aquaponics and Dizengoff Center which is the first shopping mall built in Israel in the center of Tel-Aviv. This partnership brings forward the urban farming in Israel. Green in the City has a large variety of urban farming systems : individual hydroponic home systems, educational demonstration systems and small commercial growing systems that provide vegetables for restaurants and private customers.
