tough economic times
While perusing the internet looking for local urban farming resources, I was excited to run across Pistils Nursery. I found that most websites on this topic are somewhat lacking in their graphic appeal, but Pistils seems to go against this trend. While looking at the section on urban chicken farming, a blaring contradiction struck me squarely. As the text referred to raising chickens in these 'tough economic times' while simultaneously advertising for a $1,300, I began to ponder the target market for urban agriculture products.
