The FIRST Urban Agriculture Ordinance in Massachusetts!
Somerville Gothic: Senior Transportation Planner, Sarah Spicer and Senior Economic Development Planner, Steven Azar, strike a pose after tending to the City Hall Garden on their lunch hour yesterday. The invocation of Grant Wood’s iconic piece of American art is very fitting since our All-America City is the first in the Commonwealth to pass an Urban Agriculture Ordinance and accompanying Board of Health rules. (woot! woot!) Don’t let the staid expression fool you, everyone is ecstatic about taking one more step toward continually strengthening the City’s commitment to local, healthy food and enjoying the food mecca that is Somerville, Massachusetts. Pitchforks up, y’all!
