Urban agriculture provides education, places for people to gather and greenspaces in cities. But what about jobs and livelihoods? Numerous city farming and urban gardening projects with a commercial focus have popped up in the Bay Area in the past decade. Join us for a conversation about the viability of commercial urban agriculture with the urban farmers whose businesses have put down roots.
