The third in a three-part lecture series on urban agriculture, this program explores best practices, emerging models, and new directions for urban agriculture. Our first panel asked, “Why now?” Our second looked at the “how” of designing and establishing a farm. In this panel we will consider “what next?”: How can collaboration facilitate urban agriculture? How can we better integrate urban agriculture and architectural practice? What’s next for urban agriculture?
The founders and leaders of three innovative and important farm organizations will speak about their missions, communities, and practices.

Bren Smith, Co-Founder, Greenwave; Owner, Thimble Island Ocean Farm
