Urban Agriculture

This report from the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy investigates the nature and characteristics of for-market farming within urban areas. It catalogues obstacles to such activities under four broad categories: site-related, government-related, procedure-related and perception-related. It also examines ways of overcoming these obstacles and presents actions that local governments can take to proactively support for-market urban agriculture within their communities.
