Cities that feed us: how to create urban farming in Sydney


Urban farming, using technology to grow food through hydroponics, aquaponics and other forms of controlled-environment agriculture, presents a huge opportunity for Sydney.

Mel Fyfe, Co-Founder and CEO of Blakthumb, an end-to-end controlled-environment agricultural start-up, and George Carter, Lead for vertical farming technology at US company Sananbio discussed the findings of the Cities that feed us, a landmark report that unpacks Urban Farming 101, and presented an action plan to help Australia become global leaders in urban food production.
