Productive Landscapes - A Community Planning Tool for Transforming Vacant Lots into Productive Landscapes

The Productive Landscapes Map is a community planning tool developed in collaboration with public land holding entities. The map highlights clusters of vacant public lots that may be best suited to serve as hubs for community-driven agriculture and other productive land uses. In this workshop, community groups can inform further development of this planning tool and identify vacant lots in their communities that may be ready to activate into multipurpose productive landscapes.
