Featured Speakers:
Shaniece Alexander, Director, Oakland Food Policy Council

Growing interest in urban agriculture is inspiring widespread attention from gardeners to policymakers alike, across municipalities and states. Food policy councils play an important role in assisting urban agriculture efforts by advocating for legislation, funding, and other resources, as well as through educational support for urban food producers.

Tune in to this webinar to learn about how to frame the benefits of urban agriculture to policymakers and the public based on evidence from Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future’s recent review of the existing academic research. Hear from food policy councils in Kansas City, Missouri and Oakland, California about how they are making progressive changes to support urban farmers through urban agriculture zones and tax incentives and by promoting racial and social inclusivity.
