In this “Smart Cities” episode of The Farm Report, host Lisa Elaine Held will speak to pioneers in urban agriculture about growing the infrastructure to grow more food in cities—on rooftops and barges and in warehouses and shipping containers. They’ll discuss the potential economic, environmental, health, and community benefits of urban agriculture, the biggest challenges to growing food in urban environments, and what the present and future look like—in terms of scale, technology, and potential.
