The Hort and W. Atlee Burpee Co. present the 4th Annual Urban Agriculture Conference, May 29 & 30 2014. Nearly all of the world’s population growth between now and 2030 will be concentrated in urban areas. With this rapid growth in our cities, farming in and around urban areas needs to play a bigger role in feeding these populations. This year, we will discuss the urban agriculture movement and demonstrate how people and communities around the world are addressing this issue with unique and effective solutions. Join us for a morning of lectures and an afternoon of hands-on workshops featuring urban farming techniques and practices.
