The AgLanta Conference

April 14 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm

Welcome to The AgLanta Conference 2019! The City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Resilience is pleased to team up with co-organizers Agritecture Consulting and AgTech X for the Southeast’s largest Urban Agriculture conference. Now in its 3rd year, this two-day gathering will bring together local and global changemakers in the Urban Agriculture and Local Food movement.

Theme & Tracks

This year our theme will spotlight Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Attendees will hone in on three crucial stages of development for any endeavor – Create | Pilot | Grow – by participating in tours, networking, speaker sessions, creative workshops, and (of course) locally-sourced meals.

As farming continues to expand into new environments, we ask:

  • What will the future look like for urban areas defined by a strong local food system?
  • How can the urban agriculture movement better connect into parallel sustainable urban development movements such as the circular economy, green buildings, and clean energy?
  • What role can innovation & entrepreneurship play in Atlanta’s development as a leader in the urban agriculture and local food system movement? What other cities should we look to for inspiration?
