The citywide Urban Agriculture Program is an interagency program that supports and supplies the infrastructure for community members to steward our urban green spaces, on both public and private land. We believe that the act of growing food, flowers or animals in a city builds community, educates an urban public about the ecosystem and food system around them, connects people to nature, and encourages an active citizenry who believes in stewarding our green spaces.
The Urban Agriculture Program supports urban agriculture enthusiasts in a number of ways. Physical resources can be found through the Urban Ag Resource Centers, Semiannual Plant Giveaways, and Technical Assistance. Educational opportunities are offered once a month on topics related to urban agriculture and through the Urban Ag Academy (see “News, Events, and Reports” for more information). Finally, the Coordinator supports projects across city agencies and interagency cooperation, promotes urban agriculture policies and provides information.
For any questions, please contact the Urban Ag Program Coordinator at email@example.com.
Help us get an accurate snapshot of urban agriculture practitioners and supporters across San Francisco!
This month, we are asking all gardeners and urban agriculture enthusiasts in San Francisco to fill out this quick survey (survey closes at the first week of October). http://tinyurl.com/urbanagsurvey2015
Please encourage your networks to fill this out so we have an accurate picture as possible. You don’t have to be a gardener to respond to the survey; we need as much data from the public as we can get. Although the survey is completely anonymous, if you enter your information at the end you’ll be entered into a drawing to win one of three prizes. Thanks for your support in advance.
