In this video, we head to Garcia Street Farm, an urban farm in San Antonio, Texas, to learn about regenerating damaged soils in urban areas. Urban farms often contend with issues such as compacted soil, debris, low organic matter, stubborn grass weeds from surrounding lawns, and lack of biodiversity for insect control. In this video, Garcia Street Farm staff members share some of the issues they’ve faced while farming in the middle of the city and the strategies they are utilizing to overcome these challenges.
