Heirloom 2013

“Eating is an agricultural act.” —Wendell Berry, The Pleasures of Eating
Every time we lift our fork we are supporting a farm somewhere. Increasingly, thanks to urban farms, we are supporting neighborhood farms in our own community. These farms grow healthy food, create jobs, serve as community hubs and give us the opportunity to experience the inherent value of the land.

Protecting our urban farms is key to creating a positive economic environment in Austin.
Earlier this year, the City began a process to update the Code Ordinance for our urban farms. The process was conducted over eight months of well-publicized and documented city-wide public hearings and input-gathering. As with any thoughtful and well-considered process, it brought multiple stakeholders to the table and compromises were made by all parties to accommodate multi-faceted concerns of both farmers and neighborhood groups.
