If you are on Facebook with me you’ll have already seen these, but I wanted to share them anyway. One of the big initiatives I’ve been working on over the past year or so is a plan with the city to turn some of our vacant abandoned home sites into an urban farm. It’s finally coming to fruition. Almost. 🙂
The ordinance modification necessary to allow Urban Agriculture passed it’s first reading. Our development proposal also passed so we can now begin talking with city staff to work out an agreement to gain access to some land to we can start farming.
I’m going to post more information as it becomes available. I’d like to post a link to our Urban Ag ordinance so other places can look at it as an example as well as our development plan which I think is top notch (and the city staff members have told us that as well). If or when I can find them I’ll post them up here so ya’ll can see them.
