Urban Agriculture Field Trips (2012)

Elijah’s Promise and the Ralph W. Voorhees Center partnered to enhance community food security and food-related community economic development. With a Rutgers University Community University Research Partnership grant, teams of students, faculty, community residents, city staff, and many others visited urban agriculture and community food economy projects in action to inform urban agriculture and food economy projects in New Brunswick. During the summer of 2012, community university teams visited food hubs, urban farms, food business incubators, farm markets, and other innovative food-related community economic development projects in New York City and Philadelphia to gain inspiration for projects in New Jersey.
