Cultivating Local, Healthy Food: Urban Agriculture Initiatives & Pro Bono Opportunities

Thursday, February 28, 2013 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Community residents, municipal leaders, and state agencies are working to increase access to healthy and affordable food in Massachusetts' urban centers.  Speakers at this brown-bag panel will discuss: the role of lawyers in supporting residents seeking to engage in community gardening and urban / small scale - community based farming, and associated pro bono opportunities; soon-to-be proposed changes to the Massachusetts Contingency Plan that address future gardening uses in risk assessments; and local and state urban agriculture initiatives, including proposed changes to the Boston Zoning Code Article 89.
