Urban Agriculture Policy

To achieve our 2025 vision, we work with city and borough officials, the USDA and other parties to encourage policies, financial incentives and initiatives supporting urban agriculture in New York.
To support us, get involved
 

Broadly, we are in support of:

  • Incentives, subsidies and support that helps urban farm businesses to set up and thrive in NYC. 
     
  • Policies to support re-purposing of under-used indoor, outdoor and rooftop urban spaces for community or commercial farming
     
  • Initiatives to increase NYC residents’ access to local produce
     
  • School and adult learning opportunities to do with urban agriculture and working with plants
