Opportunities For Growth: An Urban Agriculture Toolkit
The toolkit is a resource for municipal governments, urban growers, planners, and organizations to help advocate for policies that support urban agriculture. With examples of different forms of urban agriculture, case studies from municipalities around the province and tools for enacting change in communities, the toolkit prepares readers to take positive steps toward creating communities that support and incorporate urban agriculture practices.
Approximately 15% of the world’s food is grown in urban areas. There is a need to address the policy barriers that many urban growers face to accommodate for the increasing interest in urban agriculture practices. This toolkit brings together voices from across the province and shares different urban agriculture experiences in order to provide urban growers with support for their own projects.
