CREW Boston

Sustainable Building-Integrated Agriculture for Enhanced Urban Resilience Breakfast

Posternak Blankstein & Lund
800 Boylston Street (Prudential Tower), Boston MA

Members Only

Part of the Food Security & Sustainable Agriculture Series
Forecasts indicate that we will need to produce at least 60% more food by 2050 to meet demands of growing populations, primarily in urban areas. An increasing demand for local food is makings food a focal point of the urban experience. Given these drivers, join CREW Boston as we will explore how cities, communities and farmers are deploying innovative approaches to agriculture and food production that enhance resilience and placemaking, while also addressing resource constraints. We will also discuss the opportunities for and challenges of local, urban food initiatives.

This is the first in a series of events being planned among various CREW Boston Committees focused on exploring Green Roofs, Urban Agriculture, and Multifamily Residential access to Food.
