Digging for a Just and Sustainable Food System

This report focuses on urban agriculture policy in relation to the Durham region food system. The report uses a broad definition of “policy”, and includes a look at official plans, by-laws and regulations, strategies, and other municipally-approved planning documents that guide land use decisions. The purpose of this initiative was to identify policies that support or restrict elements of urban agriculture and also to look at gaps where effectively enacted policy would provide a more supportive environment for urban agriculture as part of a sustainable food system.
