Worcester Food Policy & Active Living Council
This project intended to identify and present the potential for urban agriculture in the city of Worcester through the creation of a vacant, public land inventory. This was achieved by working with local stakeholders, analyzing successful examples from other cities, and utilizing ArcGIS software. Upon completion it was revealed that Worcester contains 337 vacant or partially vacant parcels. This inventory should be used to identify potential sites for food production and inform policy decisions regarding food, health, and city planning.
