Our Plan to Help Seeders

This is a starting point and will continue to evolve!

Seeder Priorities

  • Marketing Help: Getting our local food story out there and helping attract new customers. Getting press coverage. Expanding presence on the web and in social media.
  • Facilitate the sharing of equipment and resources
  • Funding for local food projects through grants
  • Classes and education around local food topics
  • Find and share profitable urban agriculture models
  • Expand market reach
  • Create and promote a local food directory
  • Requesting clear rules and opportunities for urban agriculture in Long Beach to facilitate investment
  • Establish institutional procurement policies for local food
