Imnproving the Urban Farm Process in San Antonio
Following our 2015 zoning code changes, individuals and institutions who have started urban farms have encountered a maze of regulations and costs related to other City requirements. We are working with the Development Services Department (DSD) and others to collect those requirements in one place so that we can address these challenges with our elected representatives on City Council.

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.
