Finding the right plans to rejuvenate the interest of city residents to do farming are challenging because farming requires physical works. The numbers of urban people venturing into farming are decreasing although many efforts have been done to promote this activity. The paper highlights the needs for urban farming and the challenges to realize the objective. The paper proposes a platform to integrate technology into farming in order to help farmers to manage the growth of plants more efficiently and reduce the physical works. With the proposed farming technology, the farming activities can be less exhaustive and become more appealing to farmers.
