The field of indoor farming & controlled-environment agriculture (CEA) is growing rapidly and increasingly showing up in confined urban environments – from warehouses, to shipping containers, to “food computers.” But many challenges exist for indoor farmers when it comes to providing the proper environment for plants to thrive. And what about the sustainability implications?

In this class, taught by Djavid Amidi-Abraham, Lead Systems Designer at Agritecture Consulting, we’ll explore four specific environmental factors: Temperature, Humidity, Airflow, and Carbon Dioxide – looking at examples for how each one affects the growth of plants, what methods exist for added control, and what the footprint looks like for some of these farms.

This class was rated 4.5 out of 5.0 in our first installment.

Djavid is clearly an industry expert, and great at breaking down a world of complex ideas into approachable topics.” -Maya, 11/1/17.
