The Agricultural Urbanism Toolkit Booklet is a resource for communities to learn about Agricultural Urbanism and the tactics used to develop local food systems.  The booklet provides an overview of 19 tactics from small to large scale implementation of local food system opportunities; these include gardening to urban farming to food hubs. Each tactic describes the goal, community benefits, and community outcomes; it reveals best management practices nationally as well as local practices from communities that have partnered in the Agricultural Urbanism Toolkit design process.
