Event description

Description

New York City’s large and diverse urban agriculture system is considered one of the most innovative and vibrant in the world. The system emerged without a comprehensive strategy, yet critical issues like land tenure, infrastructure, financial and technical resources, and the role of new growing technologies, suggest that an urban agriculture plan may be needed to support and grow this vital urban infrastructure. As the City Council considers requiring a comprehensive urban agriculture plan, this forum will explore what such a plan should include and how the city should go about crafting it. On Thursday June 27, join the CUNY Urban Food Policy Institute and invited experts to explore these and other timely questions.
