AN AMBITIOUS VISION FOR NYC AGRICULTURE
Farming.NYC is devoted to achieving an ambitious vision for New York City agriculture. We do this through the following activities:
Pushing for the right policy at a city, state and federal level to support urban agriculture
Making it easy for interested people to get involved through volunteering, or finding jobs in urban agriculture in NYC.
Providing data and information about NYC’s urban agriculture
Enabling collaboration between our members
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
