Boston's going locavore per Mayor Menino's push, launched this week, to rezone the city to make it more hospitable for urban farms: "The existing Boston zoning code does not address many types of agricultural activities. If an activity is not identified it is considered a forbidden use and requires an appeal ... Boston Redevelopment Authority staff and the Mayor’s Office of Food Initiatives will work with the Urban Agriculture Working Group made up of farming advocates, experts and interested citizens ... to advise and guide the rezoning initiative."
