policy overview

City Food, City Land is an initiative of the Denver SFPC aimed at identifying underutilized public land that has the potential to be used for food production. The SFPC is recommending that the City of Denver allow the following types of urban agriculture on identified land:

  • Demonstration Farms: sites aimed at educating the public about gardening, farming, nutrition, landscaping, and more.

  • Access Farms: farms that sell or donate fresh produce to underserved communities.

  • Commercial Farms: for-profit enterprises designed to operate as viable businesses and create jobs.

  • Edible Landscaping: installations of berries, fruits, and other crops designed to provide beauty and bounty while minimizing water usage and soil erosion.
