Five Borough Farm: Seeding the Future of Urban Agriculture in New York City (PDF)


$ 10.00


Urban agriculture is booming in New York City, with more than 700 food-producing urban farms and gardens citywide. 

Five Borough Farm provides the most comprehensive picture of the city's urban agriculture activity to date, recommends initiatives to connect farmers' and gardeners' grassroots efforts to municipal policy, and provides a framework for understanding and measuring how urban agriculture contributes health, social, economic, and ecological benefits to the city. 

Through maps, photographs, information graphics and interviews with more than 100 stakeholders, Five Borough Farm illustrates how New York City's community-based farms and gardens create jobs, educate youth, capture stormwater, decrease the city's waste stream, and create safe public spaces.
