Straight Outta Compton–Urban Agriculture

Guy Raz/NPR

NPR’s All Things Considered ran an interesting story about urban farming, “Straight Outta Compton–On Horseback.” Yes, that Compton, the one that NWA sang about. We’ve talked a good bit about access to food and agriculture in urban areas in the Shaping our Towns & Cities discussions. This piece brings up some other historical, social and cultural perspectives on those topics. It is worth a listen.
