Growing Green in New Orleans - Amend the New Orleans CZO to Help Urban Farmers


FPAC Members Recirculating Farms Coalition are working with the City Council to amend the current Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance (CZO) to be more inclusive of urban agriculture and make it easier for farmers to grow food in the City limits. 

 

Asti gave a fantastic presentation at our last FPAC meeting, which you can find here. Included are ways for you to get involved. 

Urban Ag is a great use of space, can help with water management and allows people to grow more food while making a living. A win all around!
