To the Sole Food Street Farm project, a contaminated or vacant lot is an untapped resource. That it is now the largest urban farming project in North America proves they might be onto something. Located in Vancouver, the Sole Food’s mission is "to empower individuals with limited resources by providing jobs, agricultural training and inclusion in a supportive community of farmers and food lovers” by growing and selling artisanal food products year round. The full success story is told in the book Street Farm available to buy here.
