The Bay Area is known for its passion for food and its forward-thinking policy. The region’s central cities have the potential to combine the two, leading the nation by demonstrating how municipal policy can catalyze the development of urban agriculture, build a stronger regional food system and create healthier communities.
This program is generously supported by the Clif Bar Family Foundation, the Columbia Foundation, the Clarence E. Heller Charitable Foundation and the Seed Fund.
