Assessing Risk on Urban and Small Acreage Farms Webinar

May 24 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Urban agriculture: Did you know it’s happening all over Maine? From quarter-acre flower farms to community orchards to backyard gardens, Mainers are growing large quantities of food in our towns and cities. While urban growers face climate-related challenges, urban agriculture is itself a pathway to climate resiliency. This presentation will detail the state of urban agriculture in Maine, risks faced by urban growers, and the role urban ag can play in building climate resilient communities. The presentation will also discuss USDA-NRCS assistance opportunities for urban agriculture.
