On July 7,2010 we meet with representatives from Glynwood, Pathstone, Orange County Land Trust, and Downing Park to discuss how to make more urban farms in the City of Newburgh. We talked about where these farms could be located and possible funding sources. Also what policy framework can we work on to ensure the urban farming area in the City of Newburgh. We think that meeting went well, to create more allies we should have representatives from Habitat for Humanity, and City of Newburgh- to make a plan for creating more farmable space. The City needs to be there because there are policy measures that the council can make to ensure that more agricultural/horticultural space is created, there could be a policy such as 1%for public space to be turned into a farm or garden.
