How City Hall Can Foster the Urban Farming Revolution in Buffalo

Other Titles

Abstract

The City of Buffalo has made strides in recent years to make urban farming an accepted use of vacant land. However, the fact remains that the City is unwilling to “take risks” in this area. There are a number of policies that restrict the freedom of farmers to get access to land, gain long term land security, grow a diversity of foods (including animals), and sell the food. In order for farming to really take hold and have a transformative effect on the local food system and economy, the City should amend these policies to allow farmers more freedom. The City can also promote farming with a city-wide composting program and a demolition policy that requires vacant lots to be seeded with clover.
