New rules for farming in the middle of Boston — intended to expand urban agriculture while bringing some order to burgeoning inner-city bucolicism — are going up for public review and comment in 11 community meetings.
The draft zoning changes will cover everything from rooftop farms to aquaponics to backyard beekeeping.
Mayor Thomas M. Menino will kick off the first of the neighborhood meetings to discuss the proposed regulations at Suffolk University on June 3.
A Twitter chat (#UrbanAgBos) with city planners and the Mayor’s Office of Food Initiatives is set for June 19.
