This blog documents my struggles starting a mid-sized urban farm. I apply and extend principles of urban farming here on a half acre farm in San Diego, CA. Not everything goes as planned. In fact, most does not. But I hope this will allow you to learn from my mistakes. Urban farming is extremely rewarding when it works and horridly exhausting when it does not. Hopefully this will allow you to short cut some of the pitfalls that I ran into, particularly applying urban farming principles to a larger scale urban farm. Feel free to comment any additional suggestions or criticisms. I would be happy to hear my analysis is incorrect.
