— HENRY GORDON-SMITH, FOUNDER & CEO AT AGRITECTURE
Agritecture advises cities, governments, and economic development groups on how to integrate agriculture effectively and sustainably within their strategies.
The 21st-century city has a duty to ensure city-wide food security through urban agriculture. Our macro planning services are based upon Agritecture's unique Scenario Analysis methodology which takes hundreds of viable urban agriculture models and applies them to the built environment over time to achieve specific food security and resilience goals.
There are more signs than ever that cities need to take the initiative to transform food systems by putting urban agriculture on their agenda. In our 2019 Census, 45% of respondents noted educating local government about urban agriculture as a critical need. Other requests included access to affordable land for farming, and the availability of technical experts/support.
