Event description

Description

Part of Agritecture Xchange, this guided tour of 4 agricultural sites in North Brooklyn showcases the diversity of approaches and objectives that urban farming encapsulates. You'll visit:

  1. AgTech X Co-Lab @ Agritecture - A shared officespace dedicated to sustainable food & agriculture education and entrepreneurship. You'll interact with 5 different vertical farming systems plus hear about some of the exciting projects being incubated at this unique space.
  2. The Heckscher Foundation Children's Garden - A beautiful community garden in East Williamsburg. Learn about the challenges and benefits to creating a thriving community garden culture in this changing section of Brooklyn from its members.
  3. Oko Farms - NYC's only outdoor aquaponics farm & education center. You'll tour the farm; meet the founder, Yemi Amu; and learn about the complexities involved in creating a symbiotic relationship between plants, fish, and bacteria.
  4. Denizen Rooftop Farm - Brooklyn's newest rooftop farm is unique: the Tower Farm operation sits on top of a newly-constructed residential building; incorporates over 70 individual hydroponic towers; and is serviced by Green Food Solutions, a local farming business.

Please note: this is a walking tour that will cover 1.3 miles total (~10 minutes from one site to the next). Those who register should be comfortable with this amount of activity.
