Urban Garden Legislation

Sup. David Chiu is set to propose new legislation today that will streamline the process of creating urban gardens on underutilized San Francisco property. SPUR issued a report on urban gardens that stated there 75 sites around the city that aren't being used, most of them small strips of land next to libraries or medians on major streets. The legislation would add a staff person that would deal solely with the urban agriculture process, helping organizations receive approval to use land and get the gardens started.
