The Vancouver Park Board is proposing a new policy for urban agriculture to better reflect agricultural activities now taking place in urban parks. The proposed Urban Agricultural Policy will replace the current Community Gardens Policy and guide existing and new food-focused projects in Vancouver parks. Parks are seeking the collective expertise and knowledge within our networks to help guide this policy.
Please visit their website to review the draft of the proposed policy: http://vancouver.ca/people-programs/urban-agriculture-policy.aspx. Make sure to click on the “Share Your Views” blue button on the right panel to submit your feedback (the direct link to the survey is here: http://vancouver.fluidsurveys.com/s/Urban-agriculture-policy/) – the deadline for submissions is January 18, 2015.
