Urban Agriculture in New Brunswick

Graduate students and undergraduate Ralph W. Voorhees Fellows worked with Elijah’s Promise, a New Brunswick community-based organization that seeks to alleviate poverty and hunger by providing job training, small business development, education, jobs, and services. They explored the potential to grow and process food in the city, assessed the local market for locally grown food, and considered how urban agriculture can enhance economic development opportunities by identifying food growing models linked to job training, education, and entrepreneurial business development.
