Across the Golden State, especially San Francisco, more locals are beginning to grow their own crops, but with little green spaces to work from, it has become hard to sustain operations once roots begin to expand. However, urban farmers can continue increasing their sustainable efforts thanks to the Urban Agriculture Incentive Zones Act, the Huffington Post reported.

The new law is expected go into effect on January 1, 2014, and city-dwelling farmers like Caitlyn Galloway are looking forward to the change.

“Operating on a month-to-month lease means you never know what will happen tomorrow or the next day,” Galloway told KQED. “It makes smart investments in our business, like longer-term tools and infrastructure, much riskier.”

Though the new law will provide tax breaks for land-owners who permit urban farming, completing such an operation on top of asphalt and other metropolitan areas is going to come at a cost. Being a business in northern California in general comes with higher rents and costs for everyday supplies. Nonetheless, this change has great potential for another emerging market in the state.

“For businesses like ours, the potential for having a much longer-term arrangement with a property owner could completely change the playing field,” she said.

Similarly, there are resources and retailers available to help aspiring startups break ground in California. Used commercial furniture retailers for example, offer a vast selection of lightly used remanufactured office furniture pieces that are often used for newly established home offices.

To begin participating in California’s unique economic opportunities, new business owners need to save whenever feasible.  Pre-owned furniture is any easy cost savings win for folks contemplating a business start up.
