Living Concrete Explores New Future for Urban Ag

If you're in New York, make sure to check out the Living Concrete series of events at the New School, exploring the possibilities of urban agriculture.

A series of public discussions kicked off yesterday evening, at the The Sheila C. Johnson Design Center. Admission is free for a great series of upcoming talks on Urban Agriculture
and Food policy (running through December 15, 2010).
Check the schedule here.

The talks are accompanied by a travelling exhibition entitled Carrot City: Designing for Urban Agriculture, Co-curated by Dr. Mark Gorgolewski (Director of the Canada Green Building Council), Dr. June Komisar and Dr. Joe Nasr from Toronto's Ryerson University.

Carrot City explores the role of design and aesthetics in the urban farm.
