dc.description.abstractThe urban farming, local food movement, which started as a trend, has sharply increased since the recession in 2008. Financial, nutritional and community-based benefits accompany this movement along with a sense of control over one's own food. Texas has the potential to be the country's model state when looking at this new way of life and food consumption. Local food production is much more sustainable than the current food system the U.S. has in place and it is the direction the U.S. is moving.en
