If you live in the City or on a suburban lot, there are still many many ways you can work towards providing for yourselves.
Wiki goes on to say :
Having an allotment or vegetable patch has been common among those living in the suburbs for a long time, but it is predominantly in recent times that people have attempted to convert their urban green spaces from the purely ornamental to the hobby-agricultural.
