Urban agriculture is on the rise in cities across America. Vacant lots, abandoned green spaces, and urban rooftops are being transformed into productive farms and community gardens that provide fresh produce and opportunities for healthy activity, extra income, a fun family activity and more. Can urban farms produce enough food to feed large numbers of city residents? How does urban agriculture contribute to social and environmental justice? Four experts will address these questions and more in this symposium presented by Bronx Green-Up, NYBG's community gardening program. Whether you're an experienced or aspiring urban farmer, this event will plant the seeds of inspiration to start growing!
