The Urban Food Zoning Code Update project recognizes the connections between food and the community’s environmental, economic and physical health and promotes traditional and emerging ways of producing and distributing food. The project's recommended changes to the zoning code support community gardens, farmers markets, small scale market gardens, as well as alternative distribution methods such as community sponsored agriculture (CSA) and food buying clubs at a scale that is appropriate to neighborhoods and helps build community.
