During our last day in Berlin we stumbled upon this video trailer for documentary on the urban farming movement here. Speaking Gardens captures the diversity of soil-based urban farming, including guerrilla gardening, and explores the range of social impacts it can offer. The aesthetic value of urban farming is also considered. Governor Tom Corbett announced today that Green Spirit Farms LLC, a sustainable vertical farm, will establish operations in Lackawanna County and create at least 101 new jobs. Combined with the recent Sallie Mae and Maximus expansions that will create a projected 1,000 new Northeastern Pennsylvania jobs, Green Spirit Farms’ expansion is the third major regional jobs announcement in two weeks. “By adding more than 100 family-sustaining jobs to Pennsylvania’s workforce, our partnership with Green Spirit Farms will grow Pennsylvania’s economy and ensure that our commonwealth remains the best place to live, work and raise a family,” Corbett said.
