On May 29 and 30 2014, Hort and W. Atlee Burpee Co. presented the 4th Annual Urban Agriculture Conference. 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 discussed the urban agriculture movement and demonstrated how people and communities around the world are addressing this issue with unique and effective solutions. A morning of presentations and panel discussions featured successful urban farming projects, and an afternoon of hands-on workshops presented techniques and practices taught professionals in the field.
