Urban Agriculture & Community Gardens Report

Urban agriculture, which includes community gardening, is growing across the country as cities seek ways to promote health, support the local economy, improve the environment, and address the “food desert” issue (communities without access to healthy foods).

Urban agriculture increases the amount of healthy food available to people living in cities by allowing fresh vegetables and fruits to be made available to urban consumers. Community gardens are allowed in Raleigh. Learn more about how to create your own.
