Abstract

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.
