Managing Risks on an Urban Farm
Managing risks on an Urban Farm.
Urban farmers face many risks in producing safe and affordable food. Some of the risks are common to all types of farming; however, many are unique to the urban setting, including zoning regulations, access to water, and managing contaminated soils. While many cities in the U.S. are working to address some of the needs of urban farmers, profitability remains a challenge.
This webinar focuses on the risk management strategies of two urban farms – City Roots Urban Farm in Columbia, S.C., and Newton Community Farm in Newton, M.A. – and how they have overcome several of the barriers facing urban farmers today. The webinar is being presented by the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) and NCAT's ATTRA program and is funded by the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture (USDA-NIFA), 2012-68006-30177.
