Push To Change Sacramento's Urban Agriculture Ordinance

Chinowk Yisrael of Yisrael Family Farm poses in his greenhouse.


Sacramento calls itself the Farm to Fork capital of the world, yet it’s currently illegal for urban farmers in the city to sell the food they grow. But a group of farmers, chefs and food activists are trying to change that. The Sacramento Urban Agriculture Coalition is petitioning the City of Sacramento to change its laws so that urban farmers can sell food grown on their property. Chanowk Yisrael lives on a 0.5-acre farm in South Oak Park and is a leading voice in the Sacramento Urban Agriculture Coalition. He joins City Councilman Steve Hansen to explain the push behind the new agriculture ordinance.
