Search city policies and resources

This searchable database of urban agriculture resources, articles and ordinances in the U.S. and Canada was created through support from the Urban Sustainability Directors’ Network. The database offers information on best practices, useful resources and model city policies of urban agriculture for city officials and planners, urban agriculture advocates and urban farmers. As a dynamic information-sharing tool, it will continuously improve as users add materials.

You can search in multiple ways. Searching by a specific city will return only articles related to that location. Searching by keywords or categories will retrieve articles and resources related to these topics from the U.S. and Canada. To select more than one item in a scroll box, hold down the CTRL key on a PC or the Command key on a Mac.
