Redefining local: Urban ag's promise and possibility - podcastRedefining local: Urban ag's promise and possibility - podcast
Vertical farmers are growing real businesses as they push consumers and the food industry to rethink local. Some leaders making it work chat about this on the Fodder podcast powered by Esca Bona.
The promise of vertical farms and other urban agriculture projects once seemed like way-off dreams of the ag-tech set. No longer is this the case. Today, farms of all sizes—with dirt and without—support local food systems in various ways. Think neighborhood communities, diverse citywide growing operations, greens making it to grocery shelves statewide and microgreens delivered via bike (and subway) to top restaurants.
In this episode, delve into the vision with Robert Laing, the CEO of Farm.One; Alina Zolotareva, the senior marketing manager at AeroFarms; and Henry Gordon-Smith, the managing director of Agritecture.
