Urban Agriculture

Urban agriculture contributes to our city’s food security and food safety in two ways. First, it increases the total amount of food available to people living in cities. Second, it allows fresh, high quality vegetables, fruits, and other food products to be grown and produced for urban customers. The pages below include resources for all types of people involved in urban agriculture activities, from urban farming and gardening to raising chickens and bees. Explore each page for additional information and resources.
