The City of Minneapolis has a growing demand for urban farming capacity.
Homegrown Minneapolis, a citywide initiative focused on developing a healthy
local food system, is looking to evaluate current policies and community need in
order to better prepare for changes in the future. Urban farming is one aspect of
the larger urban agriculture and sustainable food systems that Homegrown
Minneapolis oversees for the city. The collaboration between Homegrown
Minneapolis and graduate students from the Humphrey School of Public Affairs
comes at a critical time for the program. It is approximately one year after a large
package of Minneapolis City Code was adopted to expand urban farming in the
city, and the city is curious to see if and how changes have occurred.
