Urban ag coming to a street near you
The San Mateo County Food System Alliance has released a new report with recommendations for implementing statewide bill AB 551 – the Urban Agriculture Incentive Zones Act of 2013. The report explains how to foster urban agriculture and a sustainable food system in the county by allowing landowners to receive tax incentives for dedicating land to agricultural uses. This will create more gardens, healthier food options, education about farming and nutrition, and physical activity! We’ll keep you posted as the Alliance moves their recommendations forward.
