The Urban Land Institute, whose mission is to provide leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide, has recently published a report on agrihoods, which are single-family, multifamily, or mixed-use communities built with a working farm or community garden as a focus.

According to ULI, “ULI’s Food and Real Estate Project explores the mutually beneficial relationship between food-based amenities—such as working farms, community gardens, food halls, restaurants, and grocery stores—and real estate. It highlights how the growing interest in and awareness of fresh, local food is spurring innovation in development projects.”

Pelican is proud to serve communities throughout Maryland that have access to local community garden programs.
