Urban Agriculture

Recognizing the movement towards local food and local food production, Jefferson County Extension has participated in a Colorado State University Extension regional Urban Agriculture effort to provide research-based information and education on this topic.

Urban agriculture has become an important political priority across the Front Range and Metro Denver. Several cities, including Wheat Ridge, Denver and Arvada, have recently updated their land use and/or zoning regulations to further encourage and promote urban agriculture.
