MCE worked with the City of St. Louis Department of Health, Building Division, and Recorder of Deed’s office to develop this guide to all the processes and policies a resident must follow when engaging in various levels of urban agriculture.

Following the 2020 efforts in the City of St. Louis, this guide was created to balance the desire for urban agriculture as a way to improve food access and spur economic activity in the City, with respecting the needs and desires of the immediately surrounding community.
