featured in D Magazine | Why Dallas Sees a Future in Urban Farming

Ross Devault

D Magazine’s latest December issue highlights Dallas’ first ever Comprehensive Urban Agriculture Plan (CUAP) crafted by TBG Director of Sustainability Mikel Wilkins, Associate Jordan Clark, and Agritecture. The plan builds on the key commitments to sustainability and environmental protections that the City of Dallas has made through its Comprehensive Environmental & Climate Action Plan (CECAP) and marks a large step forward in organizing local and regional efforts around urban agriculture and localized food sourcing, distribution, and access.

In short, the plan “provides recommendations, solutions, initial action items, and metrics in pursuit of the City’s food system resiliency challenges. The intention of CUAP is to provide a strategic long-term framework for urban agriculture development in Dallas for the city to utilize as part of current and future program and infrastructure planning efforts.”

Dallas is the first major city in Texas to commit to an organized action plan built specifically around Urban Agriculture and we sure can’t wait to see what the next several years hold for advancing and implementing the plan across the City and greater DFW region!
