Urban Agriculture: Hybridized Farm Bridge as City Garden

“Most cities in the world rely on a vulnerable system of food supply, hence they are most likely to directly experience the effects of an acute food shortage.

The country´s food supply is almost entirely dependent upon oil consumption with 95% of food consumed in the UK being oil-dependent.
