What is Urban Agriculture?
“Urban agriculture” means the production of food in a form and scale that is appropriate for the urban context and includes “market garden”; “community garden, public”; “community garden, private”; “private garden”; “aquaculture”; and “urban beekeeping”.
In order to support the production and sale of locally grown foods; build community; improve public health and well-being; and provide economic opportunity, particularly in areas that have vacant or underutilized land, the City has taken several actions.
The Sacramento City Council adopted the Urban Agriculture Ordinance to reduce the regulatory burden on urban agriculture, and the Urban Agriculture Incentive Zone Ordinance to provide tax incentives to promote urban agriculture.
• Urban Agriculture Regulations (Urban Agriculture Ordinance)
• Tax incentives for urban agriculture (Urban Agriculture Incentive Zone Ordinance)
