Portland State University is conducting a survey of urban agriculture businesses and organizations. Western North Carolina growers and owners are encouraged to participate:
Urban agriculture is growing rapidly throughout North America and we are interested to learn about the experiences of the organizations involved, as well as any obstacles they face. Municipalities have begun to craft new policies and regulations related to urban agriculture, and we hope that the information obtained from this study will help guide city planners and policymakers as they develop policies and programs that effectively meet the needs of practitioners.
This survey is intended for organizations and businesses, big or small, formal or informal, that are engaged in urban agriculture on any scale. The survey should take about 20 minutes to complete. Feel free to email us firstname.lastname@example.org or call Nathan McClintock at 503-725-4064 if you have any questions about the study.
