Everyone a farmer

Everyone a farmer


FTC sees the city as a farm, and all its residents as potential farmers

Wanna farm?

The reason why

we won't face up to our problems with the environment is that we are the problem. It's not the corporations out there, it's not the governments, it's us. We're the ones telling the corporations to make more stuff, and make it as cheap and as disposable as possible.

We're not citizens anymore. We're consumers. That's what we're called. It's just like being an alcoholic and being in denial that you're an alcoholic. We're in denial that each and every one of us is the problem. And until we face up to that, nothing's going to happen.

No Farmers No Future


No Farmers No Future


The future is food

As a species, humanity will succeed or fail in the city. Because of the size and nature of the problems we face as a species, FTC sees farming as being much more than just agriculture.

Farming is any idea, product, technology, action, activity, venture, business, or organisation that is contributing to the creation of a more integrated, harmonious, collectively prosperous, and sustainable city. Farming birthed cities – Agriculture allowed settlement, surplus, population growth, urbanisation, economics, production, technology, all the elements that contributed to modernity. If farming was the seed of this growth then it was also part of creating all the problems that face human beings.

Farmers of the solution


Farmers of the solution


If we are all contributing to our collective problems,
then we all need to be solving the problems.

The city too is a living system


even if the context and environment is different

The city is the farm

Every resident is a potential farmer, and the range of activities, the choices we make, and the resources we use are our tools for farming.

What if the farmers of the future were born and raised on the city streets? What if the people who will “farm” the human future are those most removed from traditional farming, those firmly rooted in environments of steel, glass, tar, and concrete?

If there were 7 billion farmers


imagine the abundance

Farming people is the only way

FTC believes this is the only way to ensure thriving, mutually prosperous, and sustainable cities.

A single seed contains the power of life. A grain of rice has the potential to create a thousand rice paddies. The same is true for a single person. A farmer’s efforts produce the food that sustains the human population. If there were 7 billion farmers, imagine the abundance?
