Rancho Cordova Goes Farm-to-Fork

Post Date:06/02/2015

Rancho Cordova Goes Farm-to-ForkWhat do you think when you hear Farm-to-Fork? Farmers markets, gardening, composting, and Soil Born Farms may come to mind.

Rancho Cordova is getting on the map with its own movement to promote urban agriculture and food sustainability in partnership with residents, farmers, and businesses.

These citizens are leading the charge by serving restaurant meals with local ingredients, sourcing food from local artisans, farming fruits and vegetables, providing education programs, and so much more.

Now, the City of Rancho Cordova has proposed an urban agriculture ordinance following trends in other cities that have already reviewed and approved similar programs. The City is looking for your ideas and suggestions on three areas.

Should urban agriculture be allowed in residential areas and mixed use areas? Should you be required to get a permit from the City to grow and sell produce from your house? Should you be allowed to sell produce from your house only on certain days?

The survey has been closed.
