Legal Tools for Urban Agriculture in Baltimore City

Community Law Center has created a new resource for those engaged in urban agriculture in Baltimore City. This manual consolidates and provides a brief overview of the laws, regulations, rules and policies involved in urban agriculture projects in Baltimore City. While not legal advice, the manual should point you in the right direction to understand and explore the legal issues you might encounter.

The manual provides the basics for:
1 – Getting Started
2 – Land Access and Use Restrictions
3 – Building Structures
4 – Accessing Water
5 – Keeping Farm Animals
6 – Distributing Produce
7 – Liability, Risk, and Insurance
8 – Employment and Labor Law

This manual is available for free download or to purchase a printed copy. This, and our other publications are available by clicking here.

If you are a nonprofit organization interested in farming, gardening or greening, Community Law Center may be able to provide you with free legal assistance. You can apply for legal services by clicking here.

Thank you to all of the farmers, urban and not urban, in Maryland who talked with us about their legal issues.
