Urban Gardening/Farming
What is the urban gardening/farming scene like in Busan?  I'd like to get involved with urban gardening while I'm here.  Any community gardens or CSAs?

I would be interested as well. Dotted on the bottom slopes of the mountain I live next to are dozens of little garden plots, and I've always wondered if people have to have some sort of permission to garden there, or if they just do it regardless.

About 5 years ago I had a link to a website or newspaper article that talked about co-op gardening which led me to believe that all those little garden plots here and there are rented. I even think I remember being able to rent/lease/use a 3 pyung space for something like 150,000 won a year.

Sadly, the hard drive that the link is on bit it a while back, but with some creative Googling, you may be able to dig up some English info (pun most definitely intended.)

Thanks for the info.  There is an urban farming expo happening in Haeundae this weekend, at BEXCO.  I'm going to check things out there.
