Urban Garden Law

The city passes zoning changes, making it easier to sell produce grown on private urban land.

Thanks to a recent vote by its Board of Supervisors, creating community gardens and rooftop farms is easier for the residents of San Francisco, Calif. Earlier this week, the Board unanimously passed a new urban agricultural zoning ordinance that now makes it legal to not only grow produce in private residential spaces smaller than one acre, but also to sell it on site without obtaining a permit. Introduced by Mayor Ed Lee and Supervisor David Chu, the new ordinance is one of the most progressive urban-agriculture laws in the nation.
