The City of Atlanta Mayor's Office of Resilience is pleased to team up with co-organizers Agritecture Consulting and AgTech X for the Southeast's largest Urban Agriculture conference. Now in its 3rd year, this two-day gathering will bring together local and global changemakers in the Urban Agriculture and Local Food movement.
This year our theme will spotlight Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Attendees will hone in on three crucial stages of development for any endeavor - Create | Pilot | Grow - by participating in tours, networking, speaker sessions, creative workshops, and (of course) locally-sourced meals.
As farming continues to expand into new environments, we ask:
1. What will the future look like for urban areas defined by a strong local food system?
2. How can the urban agriculture movement better connect into parallel sustainable urban development movements such as the circular economy, green buildings, and clean energy?
3. What role can innovation & entrepreneurship play in Atlanta's development as a leader in the urban agriculture and local food system movement? What other cities should we look to for inspiration?
