Around the world people are growing food in cities! From August 15 to 18, the Urban Agriculture Summit 2012 in Toronto will bring together the people who are making it happen: design professionals, community groups, social housing advocates, developers, educators, planners, homeowners and tenants, urban growers and others - to share what is working, and to discover what is possible. Participants will explore urban agriculture's current role and future potential in 21st century city-building.
The Summit will be action oriented and will highlight exceptional projects and case studies, with practical information and training. Summit programming will include a lively combination of workshops, plenaries and panels, tours, design charrettes, and professional development opportunities.
They would like to see proposals for sessions that are practical and dynamic – the focus is on interaction and training. The attendees should learn new ways to advance urban agriculture in their own communities.
We encourage sessions that feature best practices in urban food production as well as innovative policies that support urban agriculture from around North America and beyond. We are aiming to engage diverse communities and provide opportunities for knowledge exchange across sectors and to draw on local and international expertise and practical experience.
