Regulations and Urban Agriculture

This panel discussion discusses navigating challenges and advocating for change in urban agriculture. The session is moderated by Meredith Taylor with speakers Tobias Fox and Alexis Trujillo-Graham. The talk will focus on the following challenges: 1) land access and land tenure; 2) undervaluing economic impacts and opportunities; and 3) diversifying the faces and voices within the movement. Tobias and Alexis will speak about their experiences organizing community food system work in Newark where rapid redevelopment of the downtown and surrounding neighborhoods is fueling both positive and negative changes in the food culture of the city.
