Urban Agriculture Report

“Urban agriculture contributes to the quality of life and the health of individuals, families, and the community as a whole. This Urban Agriculture report, produced as part of the Regional Growth Management Strategy, explores the benefits of community gardens, rooftop gardens (and green roofs), and backyard gardens as found in a literature review and survey. Since urban agriculture has the potential to impact the social, economic, and environmental aspects of a community, the benefits are outlined in relation to a healthy community framework, represented by the 3-circle diagram below. An inventory of urban agriculture activity in Waterloo Region is also provided.”
