Curtis Stone is a friend.
He’s a colleague.
And he turned one of the most persistent myths about farming on its head.
“Farming isn’t profitable”
Permaculture is an A-Z solution, we don’t know everything that’s needed to get to that far reaching idea of ‘permanent culture’.
Between here and there, there are more than a few B-C and L-M solutions that are needed to bring about the world we need.
That’s where Curtis comes into play.
He started his work intrigued by permaculture, but permaculture is huge. And a bit nebulous, hard to pin down.
So he found a production system of farming, in the city, on other people’s land and since 2008 has been proving you can make a good income, feed local demand for high-value crops all while being in the city.
There’s more than a few people who disagree that urban farming, profitable urban farming at that, doesn’t belong in permaculture.
Profitable Urban Farming is a tool in the tool box.
A step on the road.
A way to fund the dream.
