Shagara hopes to combat poverty by teaching families how to establish small-scale house farms where they can plant different kinds of fruit trees and vegetables such as tomatoes, mint and parsley, in addition to endangered indigenous species like acacia, sycamore and fig trees.
“Because it is difficult to increase environmental awareness among people who can barely make a living, we insist on the economic benefits first and explain the health and ecological interests later on,” he says.

My business, The Urban Farm Company of Colorado, will be installing high-yield, organic, vegetable gardens at the new Stapleton Visitor Center as an example of how vegetable production can be sewn beautifully into new landscaping. Think ripe heirloom tomatoes hanging five feet above the ground on a trellis. Many of Stapleton’s homebuilders will also be displaying small, raised-bed gardens at their model homes (so watch out for them). Additionally, I will be teaching gardening classes and visiting the gardens throughout the season. Plus, I will always be available to answer questions and help homeowners launch their own gardens.
