Land use policies to promote urban agriculture
Communities around the country are looking to promote healthier eating by encouraging urban agriculture, especially through backyard gardens, community gardens, and urban farms.
“Urban agriculture” refers to a wide range of activities involving the raising, cultivation, processing, marketing, and distribution of food in urban areas.
ChangeLab Solutions developed this toolkit to provide a framework and model language for land use policies that local policymakers can tailor to promote and sustain urban agriculture in their communities.
