It is with excitement that Rec and Park staff attended this press event this morning at Little City Gardens to celebrate the passage of the Urban Agriculture Incentive Zones Act, AB 551, with Assembly Member Phil Ting and a committed group of urban ag practitioners and stakeholders.

Pictured speaking here is Mission Pie Co-Owner Karen Heisler, who gave an eloquent articulation of how the bill will work on a practical level.  The bill will go into law effective January 1, 2014, following which San Francisco will have the opportunity to opt in.
