In the summer of 2010, the city's community-garden coalition and city agencies battled over the future of urban gardens and farms and their place within the larger environmental landscape of the city.

Out of that came a basic need to understand the present purpose and services of such gardens and farms in communities, including understanding where they are, who uses them and how much food they produce.

Developing a plan for the future of urban farms in New York City is the focus of the Five Borough Farm project through the New York nonprofit Design Trust for Public Space.
