In laying the groundwork for scaleable models of land tenure for urban farming, some key concepts warrant further exploration, which are addressed in the subpages of this section.
- Is it possible to shield urban farmland from the speculative real estate market?
- Is ownership the optimal vehicle for securing land tenure in all situations?
- What are equitable approaches to property taxation that do not unduly burden urban growers?
- Is there a one-size-fits-all approach to securing tenure, or should it vary based on the needs of the grower?
- Can solo growers be successful in an urban setting, and how might teaming increase the likelihood of success?
- And finally, in the pursuit of cheap land, how can growers and the nonprofits that support them act in a manner that respects the interests of the neighborhoods in which they farm, and engages local residents as partners?
