#Luiis_3x ] NYC’s Design Trust for Public Space Launches Urban Agriculture Data Collection Po... [ #Luispokel ]

The Design Trust has researched every imaginable facet of the urban agriculture organism in New York and has even produced a book with their findings. The biggest finding of all was the handicap caused by the dearth of production data – and that production needed to be looked at not just agriculturally, but also economically, environmentally and socially. The online data toolkit will enable farmers to self-report on subjects ranging from pounds of food produced and value of produce sold to the pounds of greenwaste diverted from the landfill and the number of children brought to their gardens on educational field trips. The data will then be available in a real-time, geographically-referenced portal for anyone to look at.
