Anastasia Cole Plakias, a Co-Founder of Brooklyn Grange, will walk participants through the different contemporary models of urban agricultural businesses, with a focus on New York City, and present a framework for thinking creatively about opportunities for farming in cities. Taking place in Brooklyn Grange's indoor workshop space at the Brooklyn Navy Yard as well as up on the farm, Anastasia will cover a range of topics, including: different business entities a budding urban farmer might consider; the various goals, benefits and challenges of urban agriculture; the range of physical models–from aeroponics to aquaponics to soil-based farming–and business structures, and how each one addresses respective goals and challenges; various enterprises for the diversified urban farm, from flowers to bees to mushrooms to events, and more!
