Encourage Small Farms and Neighborhood Gardens
Develop programs to encourage sustainable, local food production. Make small farms available to those wanting to produce food for local markets and provide training and resources. Cash crops like hemp could also be a good revenue source for these farms. Such efforts could include affordable housing. Encourage neighborhood gardens and support local bartering projects. Support local food banks and efforts to harvest food that would otherwise go to waste. Provide government assistance for organic farms and university related organic projects.
