Urban Agriculture

Urban Agriculture: Growing Healthy, Sustainable Places PAS Report. With funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, managed and co-authored a new APA planning advisory service (PAS) report that examines the role of planning practice in developing and sustainable urban agriculture to support economic, social, and environmental goals. Worked collaboratively with MetroAg: the Alliance for Urban Agriculture and the Center for Resilient Cities to conduct case study research of 12 cities across the U.S. to learn how planners and local governments are actively planning and developing policies to support food production and associated activities throughout their respective jurisdictions.
National Partnership for Urban Agriculture. Collaborated with American Farmland Trust and MetroAg: Alliance for Urban Agriculture to create a working group of representatives from national non-profit organizations , federal government agencies (such as Housing and Urban Development, Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Agriculture, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), and the philanthropic community (The Funders Network for Smart Growth & Livable Communities and the Sustainable Agriculture & Food Systems Funders Network) to share resources related to urban agriculture and coordinate efforts to support urban agriculture.
