Indicators are signs of progress and change that result from an activity, project, or program. The indicator guide below— the first tool of its kind in the country— enables users to track activities across multiple farms and gardens to measure the health, social, economic, and ecological benefits of urban agriculture. The guide identifies important goals of urban agricultural activity (e.g. improve access to healthy food, increase physical activity, etc.) and recommends indicators (sales at farmers markets, number of person-hours spent working on the farm or garden) that farmers and gardeners can track to measure their impacts in reaching those goals.
