The Ecology Center is promoting changes to Berkeley’s zoning codes to facilitate the growing and raising of food. To read more about the Berkeley Edible Gardens Initiative, click here. This initiative is part of a larger movement, which this LA Times story describes: ”Although San Francisco, Berkeley and Oakland are the first California cities to craft modern urban farming regulations, they follow others nationwide that have done so, including Kansas City, Mo., and Seattle.” Click here to read the full article.

In San Francisco, zoning laws have been revised to allow the selling of produce gown in backyard gardens. Help Berkeley achieve the same goal by supporting the Berkeley Edible Gardens Initiative!
