GOOD: Zoning for Urban Produce

GOOD Magazine just posted a very interesting article regarding a proposed zoning act that would make way for designated urban gardening space in San Francisco, under the order of Mayor Gavin Newsom. Mr. Newsom has remained in favor for urban farming and continually encouraging the City and County of San Francisco to increase its healthy and sustainable food supply in an executive directive last year, in which he stated that, “access to safe, nutritious and culturally acceptable food is a basic human right and is essential to both human health and ecological sustainability.”
