Description

The AgLanta Conference is a premier urban agriculture conference, organized by Agritecture and hosted by the City of Atlanta’s Office of Resilience, to showcase urban and controlled environment agriculture (CEA) innovation, foster community engagement, and generate economic development.

AgLanta 2018 will challenge this dominant notion of Smart Cities by asking

Can a city really be “smart” without agriculture?

Presentations, Workshops, and Panel discussions will range from automation as a means to reduce waste, to big data as a key component of maximizing energy efficiency—all focusing on how smarter agriculture will be an integral part of future smart cities.
