Let the Urban Farmer teach you about washing your greens. If you grow organically and naturally, you won’t need to worry about pesticides and unwanted chemicals, but you still have to wash your food before you eat it due to dirt, insects or other contaminants.

The Urban Farmer is a channel dedicated to sharing the experiences and learnings from Curtis Stone and his urban farm Green City Acres in downtown Kelowna, BC, Canada. Last year Green City Acres grew over 50,000 lbs of food on less than an acre of land, using 100% natural, organic methods and only 80 litres of gasoline. Every year we strive to revolutionize how we farm in order to reshape our local food system to be more environmentally sustainable and socially responsible. Follow our journey, as we try to change the world one seed at a time.
Who We Are:
We’re a team of dedicated individuals who are passionate about alternative and sustainable growing practices.

We provide delicious produce grown using organic methods on various rented urban plots and will teach you how to do the same.
How We Do It:
We use highly effective intensive farming techniques to maximize the production of the land, while regenerating the health of the soil.
School of Survival
School of Survival is documenting, curating and archiving the most important skills and knowledge that we have gained as a species. If the world turned upside-down tomorrow, we want our database to be your new best friend.
Don’t worry about losing internet, we will soon have a mobile app for that, along with instructions on how you can keep it charged without a power grid.
We believe the modern world has created a future problem in that we no longer teach our most valuable knowledge as a society. Children are raised to sit at desks on a computer all day. The last century has brought wonderful technological innovation, but we are forgetting about the rest. Knowing how to program computers in Java script is as important as knowing how to harvest vegetables from a garden.
This isn’t (only) about survivalism, it’s about the survival of knowledge and human civilization. Take some time to browse our articles, search for something specific, or browse our Survival Store.
We are looking to spread the word and make available the most basic concepts that have contributed to our great civilization on a whole.
Science, safety, bush-craft, economics, fabrication, animals, farming, clothing, combat, communication, technology, construction, metallurgy, doomsday preparation, electronics, energy, engineering, food, government, hygiene, health, navigation, recreation, social guidance, trade, transportation, media and water.
Be ready for anything from alien invasion to zombie apocalypse – earthquake to global warming – radioactive fallout to economic disaster.
Learn something important everyday at School of Survival – Civilization Made Simple.
