Transform your vacant property into a farm

You know what they say — you reap what you sow.


Millennials are already imagining their very own Secret Garden.

Do you own vacant property in Sacramento and have no clue what to do with it? Well you’re in luck — the city has a program that just might inspire you.

The Urban Agriculture Incentive Zone program will offer a tax break to owners of vacant property who transform their land into a space for urban agriculture for at least five years.

Some of the eligibility criteria includes:

  • Property size between 0.10 and 3 acres
  • Metered water service connection or approved water well
  • Only includes structures related to agricultural activity, such as tool sheds or greenhouses
  • Does not include dwelling units
