Join host KyAnn Anderson as she speak’s with the City of Somerville’s Luisa Oliveira and Green City Grower’s Co-Founder Jessie Banhazl, as they discuss their collaboration efforts in Somerville’s recently passed Urban Agriculture Ordinance. These regulations are the first of their kind in the state of Massachusetts. Additionally, learn about the recently launched Urban Agriculture Ambassador’s Program, and how 15 lucky Somerville residents will be receiving free home agricultural education courses this spring, if their applications are selected (deadline is February 15th, email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application link). If you are a chicken coop enthusiast, fascinated with beehives, or dream of installing a raised-bed vegetable garden this spring, this is a must-see episode.
