Urban Agriculture Virtual Symposium
Feeding Communities Close to Home
COVID19 demonstrates the need for strong local economies and resilient solutions. Recently, the U.S Department of Agriculture reported a 2.6% increase in food prices from March to April (the largest monthly increase in 46 years), largely due to supply chain disruptions and worker illnesses. Urban agriculture is a productive form of green infrastructure that supports local economies, creates jobs, improves access to healthy fresh food, and provides ecosystem services. GRHC brings together urban and rooftop agriculture experts to share the benefits and challenges of urban agriculture projects at its Urban Agriculture Symposium
Green Roofs for Healthy Cities (GRHC) - North America Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(6) professional industry association working to grow the green roof and wall industry throughout North America since 1999.
