This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. The food systems we use today are no longer able to meet our needs. By relying on our broken mainstream food systems, we are paying more money for lower quality food. And we’re destroying our environment while doing it. The solution to our problems is to start growing food in cities. Through urban agriculture, we can grow healthier food, at lower costs, in a way that’s better for our environment. I run a company called CitiGrow. We help urban farmers find free space to grow food. We find creative ways to give property owners thousands of dollars in new revenue and costs savings by using their space for urban farming. And we give food buyers access to high quality, locally grown food. My job allows me to pursue my entrepreneurial dreams while dedicating myself and my work to improving our food systems. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations) Video Rating: / 5 Related PostsVertical farming: a future way to feed urban populations? | FT Food RevolutionUrban Agriculture: Aquaponics, a food revolution | VeoliaVertical Farming is the Future of AgricultureAgriculture 4.0: How digital farming is revolutionizing the future of foodDavid Hunt – Future of AgricultureFuture Farming: Indoor farming provides alternative to traditional agriculture
