Description

About the Workshop

An interactive design workshop that matches professionals into three small teams. Those teams then develop a concept urban or vertical farm for a pre-selected site in Baltimore. Participants will benefit from a crash course in hydroponics, aquaponics, permaculture, vertical farming, the economics of urban agriculture, and mentorship throughout the workshop.
