Urban Agriculture — Best Practices and Possibilities (PDF)

This report provides an overview of urban agriculture and local food system resources and practices across the United States and parts of Canada, with a primary emphasis on providing resources that can encourage and support urban agriculture in Missouri’s metropolitan areas. We analyzed information from a survey of Urban Sustainability Directors Network members who belong to either the national network or the Heartland Sustainability Network. We provide examples of emerging practices that are working well for cities and collate a number of resources that exist for cities and their urban agriculture practitioners and advocates.
