Adapting to Changing Needs through Urban Agriculture

February 26, 2019by ncdea


CALIFORNIA, Riverside-Corona RCD – The area that Riverside-Corona RCD (RCRCD) encompasses was once famous for its thriving sea of navel orange orchards. Like much of Southern California, the area was largely agricultural in the 1800s and early 1900s but has become increasingly developed as the population has grown. Since the 1950s alone, the population within the district has expanded from 50,000 to 500,000 residents.

Riverside-Corona RCD is keeping step with the changes in land use that they have seen in their district through the decades, and is helping farms and gardens thrive right in the middle of cities. Their urban agriculture program is holistic and comprehensive, starting with educational opportunities for community members, technical assistance and trainings for production farmers, youth engagement, support for farmers markets, and publishing resources to centralize information to make it easy for their constituents to connect to their local food system.
