Sustainable Urban Agriculture

Design Research Coordinator Kubi Ackerman presented Urban Design Lab (UDL) work on urban agriculture and food systems at the November 2009 New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) Innovations in Agriculture Conference in Albany, New York. The presentation, titled “Sustainable Urban Agriculture: Confirming viable scenarios for production”, was part of a panel on controlled environment and urban agriculture meant to highlight NYSERDA’s support of this rapidly changing field. The UDL looks forward to contributing to the research on the future role of food production and food infrastructure in and around cities, which is increasingly recognized as critical to issues of urban sustainability and public health.
