Professor Bouvier will discuss developing norms concerning urban agriculture in municipal regulations across the country, paying especially close attention to the increasingly permissive approach cities are taking towards micro-livestock, including chickens, goats, and bees. She will also discuss some of the reasons driving the change in local food policy, including food security, community engagement, property values, and health and environmental concerns with the conventional food system. She will then discuss the tensions that exist in changing regulations to allow for small livestock and urban farming because of the lack of agricultural knowledge among city leaders and because of a perceived, but untrue, connection linking agriculture in cities to poverty. A perception still exists equating urban agriculture to subsistence farming—something that only the poor and uneducated would engage in—and a concern that allowing for it will somehow lower property values and diminish the character of the community. She will discuss where these beliefs originated as well as why they are both dated and untrue.
