Tell us about your urban agriculture needs, barriers, and opportunities.

Dr. Catherine Campbell at the University of Florida’s Department of Family, Youth, and Community Sciences is investigating barriers and opportunities in urban agriculture in Florida. UF/IFAS researchers want to identify ways to support urban agriculture. This project seeks participants who are engaged in urban agriculture to complete a short survey. The information from this project will be provided to the committee who is developing the next IFAS Extension Roadmap.

The survey will ask participants general information about their farm and experience, plus needs, barriers and opportunities for the future of urban agriculture in Florida. It takes 10-15 minutes to complete. Participants have the option to provide their email to be entered in a raffle to win a $25 gift card. Participation is voluntary and responses are confidential.

For any general questions concerning this research study (IRB202000516), please contact Dr. Catherine Campbell via email at cgcampbell@ufl.edu, or by phone at (407) 410-6935. If you have questions about subjects’ rights or other concerns, you may contact UFIRB Office at (352) 392-0433, PO Box 100173, Gainesville FL 32611.

Thank you on behalf of Dr. Catherine Campbell and her research team.
