While the weather outside is frightful (fingers crossed), it's a good time to reflect upon urban farming!
 
Nevada's Hidden Stories is an occasional series that sheds light on the unique people, places, and communities which make Nevada the place we call home.  It’s produced by Rachel Hopkin and Nevada Humanities.  This report is about Lost City Farm which is Reno's first modern urban farm. It's situated on the corner of Center Street and Moran in the midtown area of the city and its the creation of two young entrepreneurs - Toni Ortega and Lyndsey Langsdale. In this story, they talk about what motivated them to start the project, the many challenges they faced, the support they've received, and why Reno is the perfect setting for an urban farm
