Baltimore Announces New Urban Agriculture Policy Plan

On September 30, 2013, the City of Baltimore released the draft of its urban agriculture policy plan for public comment.

Homegrown Baltimore: Grow Local is an ambitious plan to support and expand the production of locally grown food in Baltimore City. The plan documents the history, benefits, and types of urban agriculture in Baltimore; lays out current local urban agriculture efforts and the policies that affect them; and identifies challenges and provides recommendations for creating a more robust urban agriculture sector for our city. All types of food production, from backyard gardening to commercial farming, are considered.

Everybody's input is needed to make sure that this plan is as robust and complete as it can be! Comments will be accepted until Friday, October 25th, 2013, and should be sent to Abby Cocke at or Abby Cocke, Baltimore Office of Sustainability, 417 E. Fayette St., 8th floor, Baltimore, MD 21202.
