Urban Farming and Land Access in the Bay Area with Michelle Glowa, August 2015


What could be more empowering than growing your own food and sharing it with the community around you? With our society’s fast-paced, indoor lifestyle people are seeking out farming and gardening in urban areas as a respite and way to reconnect with nature. Many people are also seeking out community gardens to support access to culturally relevant foods. Yet, this is made to be a complex and challenging situation here in the Bay Area where some of the highest property values exist. In this interview I speak with Michelle Glowa Ph.D. who researched and wrote her dissertation on the urban farming movement in the Bay Area, with a focus on land access.
