At Sustainable Economies Law Center (SELC), we want nothing more than to see the number of new urban agriculture projects and enterprises explode all across the country! To facilitate the growth of the urban agriculture movement, we offer this website as a collection of resources on laws and regulations that regulate who, how, and where urban agriculture can occur. As a collaborative effort, the content on UrbanAgLaw.org is created by a group of legal professionals and law students, and the site is curated by SELC.

Also, check out these handy guides we’ve created for people interested in starting new worker-owned enterprises and food justice enterprises!
