Healthy Soil in Richmond's Concrete Jungle Just Food

    • Society & Culture

A common and significant challenge for urban agriculture is the health of the farm’s soil. Often, the land has been used for different purposes over the years, possibly contaminating the soil or stripping its nutrients. We follow the journey of UC Berkeley soil scientists and Urban Tilth—a nonprofit based in Richmond, California—as they work together to transform a vacant plot into a working farm.

Update: Urban Tilth leases the plot for $500 per year, not $10 per year.
