Our current news site, updated daily, is City Farmer News (www.cityfarmer.info).  City Farmer’s first web site, Urban Agriculture Notes (www.cityfarmer.org) began in 1994, was the first web site on the Internet to publish information about urban farming. These Internet websites grew out of our newspaper publication, City Farmer, which began in 1978.
