Policy Letter
July 5, 2013

The first year of the new urban agriculture program provides a unique chance to truly expand the city’s internal coordination and general support for urban gardeners and farmers.  The program is slated to be housed in the Recreation and Parks Department, pending final approval from the Board of Supervisors. During recent public meetings, the department expressed interest in receiving recommendations from community organizations regarding how the new program should prioritize its efforts. With this in mind, SPUR offers six recommendations for how the program can be most successful from its inception.
