Most vineyards are located far away from bustling cities, but the Urban Vineyard Project is being "crowd-planted" across Sydney, Australia. The inclusive farming project is encouraging city dwellers to grow their own grapevines everywhere from balconies to backyards. The initiative is giving away thousands of grapevines to make this happen. The Urban Vineyard Project is focusing on riesling and pinot noir vines.
The project's site offers tips on how to grow your own vineyard at home. It also displays a map displaying geotags of windowsills and similar city locales where their vines have been planted. With a vision of creating the largest metropolitan vineyard, the project also aims to honor Sydney's historical roots as being the birthplace of wine Down Under.
