The City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Resilience is pleased to team up with co-organizers Agritecture Consulting and AgTech X for the Southeast’s largest Urban Agriculture conference.
Create, pilot, grow at the third annual AgLanta Conference 2019 on April 14-15, 2019!
Theme & Tracks
This year the AgLanta Conference 2019 theme will spotlight Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Attendees will hone in on three crucial stages of development for any endeavor – Create | Pilot | Grow – by participating in tours, networking, speaker sessions, creative workshops, and (of course) locally-sourced meals.
As farming continues to expand into new environments, co-organizers @AgTechX and @Agritecture ask:
- What will the future look like for urban areas defined by a strong local food system?
- How can the urban agriculture movement better connect into parallel sustainable urban development movements such as the circular economy, green buildings, and clean energy?
- What role can innovation & entrepreneurship play in Atlanta’s development as a leader in the urban agriculture and local food system movement? What other cities should we look to for inspiration?
