Future of Food: Sustainable Indoor & Vertical Farming

  • The Assemblage NoMad 114 East 25th Street New York, NY 10010 (map)

Our current agricultural paradigm is broken, and with big picture trends like population booms, mass urbanization and climate change before us, new sustainable solutions for feeding our planet are imperative for the well-being of our global collective. The NYC metro area has become a fertile hub for revolutionary high-tech urban farming organizations spearheading disruptive technologies for growing local food at a fraction of the environmental and social cost.

Join us for a delicious conversation with some of NYC’s leading high-tech farming organizations, from Brooklyn mushroom containers to soil-free aeroponic vertical farms, and learn how they are consciously disrupting the agriculture industry in a major way. Local produce will be served.

Speaking will be:

  • Alina Zolotareva, RDN, AeroFarms + Seeds and the City Podcast

  • Henry Gordon Smith, Agritecture

  • Tinia Pina, Founder / CEO, ReNuble

  • Andrew Carter, Co-Founder / CEO, Smallhold
