Promoting Urban Agriculture in North Fair Oaks and San Mateo County

Post

The statewide passage of AB 551 presented an opportunity for the San Mateo Food System Alliance (SMFSA) to further its work in promoting a sustainable food system in San Mateo County through urban agriculture. To accomplish this, the SMFSA Policy Committee’s AB 551 Working Group undertook the task of evaluating the potential implementation of AB 551 in unincorporated areas in San Mateo County. As part of this initiative, the Working Group first focused their efforts on exploring the potential implementation of AB 551 in North Fair Oaks, a low-income unincorporated community in San Mateo County that offers opportunity to support and enhance health and well-being.
