The Bernalillo County Community Urban Agriculture Project was initiated in 2019 through the International District Urban Agricultural Plan, a community-led effort to identify and enhance the overall urban agricultural landscape in and around Albuquerque’s International District. The BCC Urban Ag Project furthers the goals of this initial plan by providing a public, online resource and networking tool for supporting existing urban agriculture efforts, or starting your own.
Nine priority project sites were identified through the ID Urban Ag Plan needs assessment and resource mapping. These project sites represent a range of urban agricultural typologies that provide valuable lessons learned for other sites and areas across the region. The partners associated with these sites demonstrate active participation in local agricultural efforts and in envisioning future development opportunities.
