Advocating for an Urban Agriculture Plan to Grow More Food and Jobs

Susan Chin | December 7, 2017

A comprehensive urban agriculture plan is necessary for establishing an efficient citywide land use scheme for growing food. We need streamlined and effective regulation to expand and strengthen the City’s 900+ farms and gardens – the largest number of any U.S. city - but also better coordination integrating urban agriculture into existing plans, programs, and policy-making processes in city government, and for creating more transparent and participatory processes to enable gardeners and farmers to influence decision-making on urban agriculture. Boston, Chicago, Atlanta, and Denver have plans that have encouraged innovative land and space use, spurred job creation, refined food policy, and supported mission-based gardeners to expand their efforts – why not New York?

Call for Fellows

Apply for the "Power in Place" Fellowships by December 7

Samira Behrooz | October 26, 2017

The Design Trust for Public Space, in partnership with South Bronx Unite will award three fellowships for the Power in Place: Building Community Wealth and Well-Being in Mott Haven-Port Morris project in mapping, community planning, and participatory design. The fellowship in mapping has already been awarded to Monxo Lopez from South Bronx Unite.

Building on a deep legacy of community organizing roots, Power in Place will make the case for community-prioritized use of land in the Mott Haven-Port Morris area. The project will explore the potential of the Community Land Trust  (“CLT”) as a model for public space and will create a mapping framework and a series of maps, develop a community-driven plan for this neighborhood and a communication toolkit to achieve community-desired outcomes.
