One of the biggest things that irritates me is Urban farming. Not talking about the practice of urban farming but of the lean that urban farming in New York State is just in NYC. It is bothersome that NYC is all that folks think of when they thing of NY State, personally the are biggest social economical baggage that the state has and the state would be better off without it. That being said, just do some research on Urban Farming in NY State. Even Cornell University focuses in on the city in their guide "Guide to Urban Farming in NYS-Revised 1.24.13". What about the rest of us aspiring to be urban farmers, to be self sufficient on what little lots we own. To make the most of the space and help make our communities a little better, maybe even to have a small cottage industry farm. I think for the 99% of us not in the city it comes down to how our local governments be able to tax us over it, fee us to death and pretend in this collapsing economy that they, the pinky out officials, that have been elected are there for us. How can we as the urban farmer convince city hall to back off and let us pursue our growing desires?
