Our staple introductory course, taught more than 40 times, and updated continuously for the most relevant and up-to-date information.

During the class: Investigate evidence-based factors that are affecting the rise in popularity of Urban Agriculture. Explore the range of existing urban ag approaches with a focus on NYC, discussing benefits & drawbacks to each one, and discuss what opportunities exist to engage further in this emerging field. Examples covered will have a focus on soilless farming practices including hydroponics and aquaponics, two of the more popular methods for growing food in confined urban environments.

After the class: You’ll unlock access to our digital network of over 150 NYC-based researchers, career transitioners, & entrepreneurs. Benefits include: discounts to upcoming AgTech X classes & external conferences; shared news on sustainable food & agriculture trends; and relevant job postings.
