Chinese Language Websites for City Farmers
Shelley Xu, a visitor to our Compost Garden in Vancouver, looked at some Chinese language websites for information on urban agriculture.
I did some searching on the web and found a Chinese site named “CityFarmer” and some other sources, most of which have information for the public at a grassroots level. Since there’s limited residential space in urban areas, most gardeners utilize their balcony spaces. Community gardens can also be found, and there are some privately owned farms open to the public for recreational/educational visits.

RUAF foundation links to a Chinese website where I downloaded and read some of the articles about projects in China. The RUAF has a partnership with the Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences.
There’s one other urban agriculture research institute at Beijing University of Agriculture. In Chinese only.
