Around the world, urban agriculture is playing a role in feeding a growing global population from mid-America to the Middle East. This video introduces Said Salim Abu Naser, a proponent of sustainable agriculture living and working in Gaza City, Palestine along the Mediterranean Coast.

Abu Nasser has created a 200-square-meter (2,153-square-feet) micro-farm using a hydroponic system and homemade organic pest-control solutions consisting of garlic, pepper, soap and more. Each year, he produces approximately 3,500 kilograms (7,716 pounds) of food — enough to feed 30 people. Perhaps more important, though, his urban farm may be a model for others hoping to grow food sustainably at smaller scales.
