Excerpt from Introduction (Abelman, xi):
"Street Farm is the story of Sole Food Street Farms, a network of four urban farms located on five acres of reclaimed land throughout downtown Vancouver. We produce over twenty-five tons of fresh produce per year, including tree fruit from a large urban orchard, supply more than thirty area restaurants, sell at five Vancouver farmer markets, and operate a community supported agriculture program. We also donate up to $20,000 of produce per year to community kitchens and provide jobs to twenty-five people . . ."
