Urban Agriculture Initiative

Los Angeles is home to one of the largest urban agriculture economies in the nation. Angelenos curate and maintain urban gardens, urban farms, farmer's markets, composting sites, and hydroponics in an effort to localize our food supply.

Assemblymember Kamlager implemented the Urban Agriculture Initiative (UAI) to address the needs of urban agriculture stakeholders in the 54th assembly district. The initiative includes a collective of organizations and constituents that have an interest in broadening their work in the 54th assembly district and Los Angeles County at large.

The Urban Agriculture Initiative is focused on identifying and sharing legislation and other policies that empower and positively affect urban growers across California. With this mission in mind, it seeks to cultivate strong relationships between urban growers and their government representatives.
