Buying & Selling from Urban Farms

HomegrownFood_Tomatoes.jpegRetailers and restaurants are increasingly looking to urban farms as a source of fresh fruits and vegetables, but California laws can be barriers to these relationships. UC Berkeley Law students Anthony Guzman and Lily Wang will explain local laws that affect urban farming and foraging, using Oakland as an example. SELC staff will also provide an update on current policy issues related to urban agriculture.

We will follow these presentations with a group discussion addressing the following questions:farm-effort.jpg

  • Have you sold/bought foraged foods or produce from an urban farm?

  • If so, have you tried to get approvals from city, county, or state agencies?

  • What legal barriers have you experienced as a buyer/seller of urban farm products?

  • For restaurants and retailers: do you ask your suppliers for any business or food safety documentation?

  • For urban farmers: have potential clients asked you for particular certifications or documentation?

  • Who do you go to with questions about buying/selling produce from urban farms?

  • How can SELC support you in growing your urban farm or in purchasing more local farm products?
