KANKAKEE, Ill. | Call them "pets with benefits" if you want, but keeping a few chickens in a backyard pen is one of the hottest new trends in small-scale, urban agriculture.
VALPARAISO | It was beginning to look like someone put a curse on the city's effort to start community gardens to grow vegetables for needy families.
VALPARAISO | When the frost is on the pumpkins this fall, some of those pumpkins will be growing in the city-sponsored Garden for Others.
As the region struggles to recover from the worst economy since the Great Depression, there are some intriguing signs of growth. Planting urban gardens is among them.
The food system is broken. In Indiana and around the world, vast amounts of food are wasted while many go hungry. One-third of all greenhouse gas emissions come from agriculture. The number of food-related disease is on the rise.
With so much emphasis on fighting obesity in the United States, it seems counterintuitive that thousands of people in Northwest Indiana and the south suburbs live in food deserts. It's a serious problem, though.
PORTAGE | The Portage Parks Department is looking for residents interested in participating in a community garden.
VALPARAISO | It has taken about two years for Green Farms Agronomics and Mycology LLC to lay the groundwork to build an indoor vertical farm and produce crops.
It's not easy to think of cities as fertile ground for farms, but that notion is taking hold in urban areas across the nation.
