Upcoming ASLA Online Learning Webinar

Centering Community, Equity and Culture in Urban Agriculture and Food Systems Planning
Tuesday, December 7, 2021
1:00 p.m. ET/10:00 a.m. PT

Hosted by the ASLA Landscape—Land Use Planning PPN

Join us for an exploration of three approaches to city-led planning for urban agriculture and urban food systems. This series of presentations and panel discussion will include leaders from the cities of Atlanta, New Haven, and Philadelphia who are working with their own local constituencies to acknowledge urban agriculture as a land use,  infrastructure, and cultural activity through locally-nuanced planning efforts. Together we will explore the challenges and opportunities of balancing these factors from leadership roles in the public sector.


  • Kimberly Acosta, Food Policy Analyst, City of New Haven
  • J. Olu Baiyewu, Urban Agriculture Director, City of Atlanta
  • Elizabeth Beak, Food Systems Planner, City of Atlanta Office of Housing and Community Development, Department of City Planning
  • Ash Richards, Director of Urban Agriculture, City of Philadelphia
