Following three working group meetings, the Urban Farms Process and Code Coordination working group of the Sustainable Food Policy Board will host its final session to address pending updates to Austin’s urban farm code.

While not the last opportunity for public comment, the town-hall-style meeting is the final step before submitting recommendations to the Sustainable Food Policy Board. Previous meetings have gathered input on a variety of topics including animal raising, site requirements, agritourism, byproducts, and environmental health.

For more information, contact Heather Frambach at heather.frambach@austintexas.gov or Katherine Avalos Nicely at katherine.nicely@gmail.com.

Tue., June 11, 5:30-7:30pm. Millenium Youth Entertainment Complex, 1156 Hargraves.
