Urban farming is the practice of cultivating, processing and distributing food in, or around (peri-urban) a village, town or city. Additionally, urban farming can also grip husbandry, aquaculture, agro-forestry and horticulture. These actions also take place in peri-urban areas.
Urban farming is usually exercised for income-earning or food-producing activities though in some communities the main impulsion is recreation and relaxation. Urban agriculture contributes to food security and food safety in couple of ways: first, it enhances the amount of food available to people living in cities, and, second, it allows fresh vegetables and fruits and meat products to be made available to urban customers. A frequent and competent form of urban agriculture is the bio-intensive technique. Since urban agriculture promotes energy-saving local food production, urban and peri-urban agriculture are normally seen as sustainable practices.
Thus we can start implementing urban agriculture in Bangladesh with a view to ensuring food security and a good source of employment for many.
