Urban farming is on the upward trend but it takes a lot of hard work and perseverance to make a living at it. Stacey Givens, owner and creator of The Side Yard Farm & Kitchen, is putting in that hard work running a diversified operation. A recent recipient of a Local Hero Award, Stacey talks about the process of starting The Side Yard and its evolution over the years.
