Event Details

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 LA. Participants will benefit from a crash course in hydroponics, aquaponics, vertical farming, economics of urban agriculture, and mentorship throughout the workshop.

At the conclusion of the workshop, an audience will gather on April 1st at 4:00pm at Perkins+Will's office for the presentation and networking session.
