Despite being a highly dense urban environment, Hartford is on a path toward being one of the more sustainable cities in the country. In January 2016, Hartford’s Planning & Zoning Commission passed sweeping changes to its zoning code. As chair of the Commission, I thought friends of NOFA might be interested in learning more about a few relevant facets of the new code: community gardens, urban farming (including bees & hens), farmers’ markets, and artificial turf.
