Urban Ag Tax Credit

Updated: Mar 12

The MetroWest Food Collaborative signed onto a letter of testimony with the Conservation Law Foundation to support “An Act Promoting Urban Agriculture and Horticulture” (S.1893/H.2995). This bill addresses the challenge of land access through an optional tax incentive for landowners who make their land available for farming. Providing more access to land for farming in our cities (such as Framingham) will help accelerate the growth of urban agriculture and support low-income, people of color, immigrant, and New American farmers in search of land on which to grow. Urban farms play a vital role in our cities, providing access to healthy, local food, green space that benefits both body and mind, and more.
