Goal

The Urban Ag Work Group pushes the growth of agriculture within the city through policy change, education programs and collaboration coordination.

This Ted Talk from TEDxSan Antonio is by Mitch Hagney, board member and, as of January 2017, also the President. Mitch speaks directly to the opportunities in urban agriculture that vary from city to city based on their land, waste and people.

 

This map identifies locations around San Antonio that are growing food. The number of fruit trees, community gardens, restaurant gardens and urban farms shows that the city’s production is substantial. We’d like to see it grow it even larger.

If you would like to add a spot to the map, contact Mitch Hagney at mitchellhagney@gmail.com.
