A detailed, in-depth and practical class across 3 consecutive evenings, where students learn the commercial aspects of urban farming from the founders of Farm.One, and the leading global urban farm consultants at Agritecture Consulting.
In this class, led by Scott Carrus, Agritecture’s Lead Horticulturist, you’ll dive into the world of pest management, learning about the organic vs. synthetic pesticide debate and the more holistic approach of using beneficial insects.
With ample case studies from the Southeastern US, the conference will cover issues across the spectrum of urban agriculture business models and technologies. Aglanta 2018 will spotlight local champions already doing incredible work growing food as means of ecological restoration, social cohesion, cultural preservation, economic development, and biopharmaceutical development. The conference will also highlight why Atlanta is the perfect location for smart agribusiness to set root. More info on the Aglanta website.
