Cornucopia in the City: Growing Urban Agriculture with Trees
Thursday, February 18th @ 10am-11am
[VIEW A RECORDING OF THIS SESSION HERE]
Growing food in urban and peri-urban areas can be an important component in our nation’s agricultural production portfolio. Urban agriculture can provide a local source of fresh healthy food, create jobs, promote physical activity, increase community connections, create biologically diverse habitats, and enhance resiliency. Accomplishing these interrelated goals can be enhanced by incorporating trees and shrubs into the fabric of urban and peri-urban agriculture.
