Urban Edge Agricultural Parks Toolkit

The Urban Edge Agricultural Parks Toolkit is a comprehensive guide for public and private landowners who want to revitalize or establish agriculture as a valued urban-edge amenity. Download the toolkit here.

The concept for Urban Edge Agricultural Parks stems from the simple idea that the most critical place to create common ground between urban and rural interests is in the interface: a place with the potential for a rich intermixing of urban and rural activities.

The Urban Edge Agricultural Parks Toolkit introduces the components of the AgPark model in six units. It includes nuts-and-bolts information on site, natural resources, facilities, governance, public interaction and finances, as well as “real world examples” describing programs and strategies.

SAGE’s first publication about AgParks was A Feasibility Study for Urban Edge Agricultural Parks.
