What’s new with the Sacramento Urban Agriculture Coalition?
The County of Sacramento has passed the urban agriculture ordinance! That means – 30 days from January 24, 2017 – anyone in the unincorporated part of Sacramento County can grow and sell produce. You could also raise chickens, egg-laying ducks, bees, and larger animals (for educational purposes). Click here to learn more about the County’s ordinance.
- A big celebration!! Details forthcoming 🙂
- SUAC will work with the County of Sacramento to extend the Urban Agriculture Incentive Zone – currently only covering the City of Sacramento – to unincorporated County properties. That change will take effect later in 2017 if all goes well.
- SUAC is working to identify vacant parcels that are eligible for the Urban Agriculture Incentive Zone to help budding urban farmers find a place to lay some seeds. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
- SUAC is partnering with advocates from across the state to extend the Urban Agriculture Incentive Zone in State law, as it will currently sunset in 2018. Stay tuned for more details soon!
