Local food was once considered to be in the purview of consumers and small-scale producers. Recently, policymakers, including those residing in cities, began embracing local food systems as a solution to a myriad of urban problems, including lack of green space and a dearth of healthy food availability. As part of this shift in policy, cities and other jurisdictions have embraced production in the urban environment.

But at the local and state levels, such policies are often based on a vision of how food might be grown in a city, and do not consider the feasibility or viability of such ventures. Nor do the policies consider how much of a contribution urban farms might make to urban food supplies.

This webinar, presented by Carolyn Dimitri, Associate Professor of Food Studies at NYU Steinhardt; and Andy Pressman, National Center for Appropriate Technology Sustainable Agriculture Specialist addresses those questions and others.
