The Horticultural Society of New York presents our 3rd Annual Urban Agriculture Conference, being held in May 2013 in New York City. This year’s conference will focus on increasing the awareness of food security in our struggling economy and will explore the potential of food production in urban environments as a prominent and viable alternative.
Every day the trip from farm to plate is growing smaller in cities with the expansion of Urban Agriculture. Gardeners, landscape designers, teachers, farmers, architects, parents, community organizers, and others have been working towards a healthier future and a greener landscape.
The conference will highlight individuals who are effectively producing food in urban environments or influencing the growth of the movement in some way and are excited to share their expertise, instruction, and inspiration to help energize and engage our diverse community.
