The Kalamazoo Conservation District received a grant from the National Association of Conservation Districts to conduct a community needs assessment on urban
agriculture in Kalamazoo County. Survey data was collected between January and May 2023.
We reached out to members of the community to better understand the type of programming that will best suit the needs of urban farmers. The
feedback will be used to provide outreach to those who will benefit from conservation programs, technical assistance, and farm bill programs. The feedback will also be used to plan, design, and
implement future conservation related workshops, informational sessions, and practice demonstrations that will best meet the needs of our urban community.
The downloadable file presents the results of the Urban Agriculture Community Needs Assessment Survey. This survey was completed as part of a grant received from the
National Association of Conservation Districts.
