The New Cultivate LA Map is Live!

Check out the new and improved Cultivate LA interactive map! Our data is completely updated, and there are over 1,000 urban agriculture sites represented on the map. We’ve also revamped our website, improved the map’s functionality, and added new features. See our How to Use the Map/FAQ for guidance and questions.

The map shows urban agriculture sites in Los Angeles County, including farms, school gardens, community gardens, and nurseries. Here are two important ways to use the map.

  1. Use it to find out what urban agriculture sites are nearby. Whether you are interested in joining a community garden, starting an urban farm, or finding out what nurseries are in your neighborhood, Cultivate LA shows what urban agriculture is active near any location in LA County.
  2. It’s an advocacy tool for urban agriculture.  The new jurisdiction function can show you how many school gardens are in your school district, or how many urban farms your city has compared to neighboring cities, for example. These statistics can help you garner support for urban agriculture in your community.

Don’t see your site on the map? Fill out our short online survey and we’ll add it to the map.

Thank you to all who helped with our data collection efforts – we couldn’t have completed this project without you!  And special thanks to the UC Global Food Initiative which provided funding for our UCLA student assistant, Taylor Henry, who coordinated the map update during 2016.
