Growing Urban Agriculture Webinar and Make Money as an Urban Farmer video training

- Two opportunities here for learning more about urban agriculture. This first one is a pathway to making healthy food more available for low-income communities, and shifting economic revitalization efforts.  Get potential growers, even 15 years old, to sign up for both. Great, too, for school teachers to get their classes going. – Editor
