The East Austin urban farms are diamonds in the rough. They provide our community with access to local, sustainable food, teach our children where food comes from, provide beautiful urban settings for events, and their farmers frequently donate their time and resources to our community.
The urban farm code recommendations outline how an urban farm should operate in a neighborhood context. These recommendations were created through a transparent, in-depth process over the last nine months. Community members from the entire city provided input. Every scheduled meeting was open to the public and publicized in print and social media. All opinions were heard and the collective voices shaped the existing document.
