LOCATION
DETAILS
Join Agritecture & AgTech Xfor a curated week in New York exploring agriculture's role within the Sustainable City movement.
*See below for full agenda + individual event links!*
Agriculture is experiencing a cultural renaissance in urban centers around the world. But even as urban agriculture blossoms, it still remains a novel idea within the Smart City & Green Business movements.
At Agritecture & AgTech X, we believe the conversation around urban agriculture is too isolated.With Agritecture Xchange, we seek to broaden that dialogue with a week of educational events & knowledge sharing.
We are bringing together entrepreneurs, architects, city officials, investors, & researchers to learn about how agriculture fits into the larger themes of sustainability & the urban environment.
Individual event tickets are being released on a rolling basis - see below for links to those pages. All-Access Passes are officially sold out! We do have alimited number ofSponsorship Opportunitiesremaining, available for purchase on this page or by emailing us here.
