Welcome to the New Jersey Interactive Web Map! This tool provides information about specific locations of urban agriculture in eight focus cities–Jersey City, Newark, Elizabeth, Paterson, Trenton, Camden, Bridgeton, and Atlantic City–that are geographically dispersed across the state, demographically diverse, and represent different levels of urban density.
To better understand the context of these urban ag sites, additional data layers that show Opportunity Zones, Preserved Farmland, Preserved Open Space, NJEDA Food Deserts locations (only the 50 most severe), households receiving SNAP, and more are included. Turn these layers on and off using the eye icon next to the layer name.
Data on the urban ag sites was provided by organizations associated with them and provides a baseline for updates over time. Mapping will expand beyond the initial cohort of eight focus cities to include additional urban centers in subsequent project phases.
