Fertile Ground – LA urban farming


Join us at Local Roots for the 4th Global Ag Innovation Network event, where you’ll have access to locally sourced food, microbrew and conversation with the “who’s who” of urban farming in LA. Featuring food from Bohemia food truck and a local LA brewery.

Urban farms are potentially the next big thing in ag, and LA’s sprawl is fertile ground. Three innovators in indoor ag, plus a who’s-who open mic of local experts bring us up to date on LA’s urban farming scene, and forecast opportunities for the region. 

Innovations and ideas on stage give shape to LA’s landscape

Entrepreneurs and DIY-ers discuss their experience with and the opportunity for indoor farm boxes with precision climate control systems, sustainable indoor and outdoor urban farms, social justice and food security for underserved communities, engaging under-utilized urban sites to produce high-quality local food.
