Time: 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
In the emerging fields of vertical farming and urban agriculture there are many events and conferences practicing lecture-based learning. We need a more integrated approach!
Agritecture.com and The Association for Vertical Farming have partnered with Columbia University’s Sustainability Management program, Blue Planet Environmental, and Arise International to launch a interdisciplinary workshop focused on collaboration towards design and innovation in urban agriculture and vertical farming. The day and a half-long workshop will be held the evening of December 5th and all day December 6th 2014 at Columbia University and matches professional architects, hydroponic growers, entrepreneurs, engineers, marketers, designers, and sustainability managers to develop concepts for NYC. The workshop comprises of three teams, each matched with the goal of demonstrating innovation, sustainability, and viability around integrating food production into the city.
Tickets for Public Presentation:
A public presentation of the concepts will be held on the evening of December 6th. Tickets are a $15 donation to the AVF. If you are already a member of the AVF, tickets are free! You can join the AVF here: http://vertical-farming.net/why-join/ or buy tickets here: http://vertical-farming.net/nyc-event/
Dr. Dickson Despommier, author of The Vertical Farm, and professor emeritus at Columbia University will be speaking to participants of the event.
Each of the three teams will be asked to present their concepts in 20 minute presentations each (including Q&A). Come hear the presentations, ask questions, and learn about the future of farming in NYC and beyond!
