Urban Agriculture

This city policy supports community gardens, market gardens, and urban farms. It extends lease terms to up to five years for gardens on vacant City-owned parcels determined to be undevelopable; provides criteria for determining a parcel’s eligibility for lease or sale as a garden space to commercial growers and community gardeners with priority access; expands the number of city-owned lots available for gardens; and defines garden lease standards for fees, insurance and security deposits.
