The goal of the toolkit is to make clear the laws that affect residents who are growing and selling food in the city. The resource will save residents time and money by consolidating the municipal, county, state and federal regulations that govern food cultivation and distribution in Oakland. In addition, the toolkit provides suggestions for how to access land for cultivation and offers resources to support starting and running a small food business based on food grown by residents. The toolkit includes an extensive resource list, including a land access checklist and a model lease agreement.
