Urban Agriculture Coalition

The Collaborative organizes skill sharing and relationship building among urban agriculture stakeholders and organizations. This includes hosting an active listserv and regular skill share sessions on zoom.

One of the resources developed by and for the coalition is the MA Urban Agriculture Drive Folder, which includes notes and recordings from previous skill shares. The coalition holds skill shares on a regular basis and look forward to seeing you on zoom!
