The Premier Urban Agriculture Conference in Atlanta

Back for its 2nd year, the AgLanta Conference is a premier urban agriculture conference organized by Agritecture and hosted by the City of Atlanta’s Office of Resilience.   Urban and controlled environment agriculture (CEA) innovation will be showcased, and AgLanta 2018 promises to foster community engagement and generate economic development as well.

AgLanta.org is the South’s biggest urban agriculture community, coming from the Mayor’s Office of Resilience in the City of Atlanta.  We all know a city with a strong local food economy is a resilient city, and AgLanta.org explores the smart technologies and strategies that connect agriculture with the city of Atlanta.

Can a City Really be “Smart” without Agriculture?

Cities and companies around the world are recognizing the growing demand for local food coupled with an ever growing urban population.  As a result, urban and controlled environment agriculture has emerged as a promising and viable solution.

Urban agriculture and CEA can work together to drive food access, economic development, as well as social, environmental, and health benefits.

Smart Ag for Smart Cities

15% Discount to the AgLanta Conference 2018

Over the past few years, we have seen an increasing pattern of cities and conferences focusing on the “Smart City.”  These conversations tend to encompass everything from IoT to energy efficiency, but almost always leave agriculture out of the picture, which is why this year’s theme is “Smart Ag for Smart Cities.”

30+ Speakers

AgLanta Conference 2018 will feature 30+ speakers across seven Smart Agriculture and Smart Cities topics.  Also, there are bonus workshops and two huge keynote speakers.  Otis Rolley, Regional Director, North America with 100 Resilient Cities, is the Day 1 Keynote Speaker.  Otis’ entire career has been dedicated toward resilience and urban development in the private, non-profit and public sectors.

Vonnie Estes, a consultant in ag innovation and the 2017 winner of the Rosalind Franklin Award for Biotechnology, is the Day 2 Keynote Speaker.  Vonnie is one of the leading female executives in the biofuels industry and will be speaking about the role of Big Data in agriculture and emerging biotechnologies as they apply to urban agriculture.

See all of the Speakers.

Not to be missed, workshops include “Smart Food Access Planning”: How to use GIS and other data sets to target local food enterprise solutions for food insecure neighborhoods and “Smart Policy for Smart Agriculture”: How farmers and policymakers can formulate strategies for the 2018 Farm Bill and beyond.
