Commercial Urban Farming class with Agritecture Consultinghosted by
Saturday, February 16, 2019
Take this comprehensive class before launching your urban farming business.
Urban farming is exciting and sustainable, but is it also profitable? New entrepreneurs and indoor farmers can get caught up in the excitement without careful planning, leading to unexpected future costs and making it hard to build a successful farm business.
In this detailed and practical one-day class, students learn the commercial aspects of urban farming from the Agritecture Consulting team at our headquarters in Brooklyn. The class culminates with a private tour of Farm.One’s newest location in lower Manhattan, where participants get an in-depth look at the inner workings of a pioneering vertical farm.
Whether you’re thinking of starting a peri-urban greenhouse, a vertical farm in the heart of a city, or just looking to get a detailed understanding of commercial urban farming fundamentals, this class will give you the core knowledge and skills needed to plan out and profitably operate an urban farming business of your choice.
