Growing food in cities involves not only a green thumb but also a myriad of design and planning decisions. From community gardens to rooftop farms, urban agriculture takes many shapes and forms. Join our speaker, a landscape architect and the author of Designing Urban Agriculture, for a discussion of case studies and strategies from around the country that provide designers and planners with a role in forging healthier communities and a healthier environment.
