Urban Agriculture Rezoning Initiative
The City of Boston is working to expand access to local, sustainably grown food by creating new opportunities for urban food production. Topics under discussion include rooftop & vertical agriculture, hydroponics and aquaculture, soil safety standards, composting, and the keeping of animals and bees. Along with the Boston Redevelopment Authority, the Mayor’s Urban Agriculture Working Group has been developing recommendations in dialogue with residents, community leaders, farming advocates and experts, stakeholder organizations, and the Office of Food Initiatives since January 2012.
