The Urban Agriculture Manual is intended to be a curated and annotated collection of resources for diversified urban and peri-urban growers, whether they are non-profit organizations, for profit farms or community gardens. We welcome suggestions for new resources or for topics you would like to see addressed. Please contact Julie Dawson, Department of Horticulture, University of Wisconsin-Madison, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Resources on food systems and policy-level questions are available through the Community Food Systems Toolkit, https://fyi.uwex.edu/foodsystemstoolkit/. The toolkit is a curated collection of action-oriented resources to help practitioners and community groups plan, implement and evaluate a variety of community food system initiatives.
The manual was created as part of the Community and Regional Food Systems project, http://www.community-food.org/, funded by USDA-AFRI. It is maintained by the Urban and Regional Food Systems group, http://dawson.horticulture.wisc.edu/, at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Special thanks to Natalie Cotter, Master’s 2016 in Urban and Regional Planning for her contributions to the manual content and website.
