Urban farming in Boston
Urban farming gives residents better access to fresh, healthy, and affordable food. It also cuts down on transportation costs and carbon emissions. The City passed Article 89 in 2013 to support commercial urban farming in the City. Our goal is to bring communities and small businesses together through farming and to give residents easy access to fresh food.

How to start a farm
The first step is to find a plot of land or rooftop that will work for farming. We recommend creating a business plan to help you prepare for the steps ahead. You also need to get permits and follow certain regulations.
