IN VANCOUVER By Keith Agoada L ogical solutions have been put forth to help create an improved, sustainable food systems. At the forefront of the solutions is urban agriculture; growing food in the city. It is viewed as a new, sustainable industry with the potential to create green jobs and make a healthier population and planet. Green Roofs for Healthy Cities’ new Urban Agriculture Committee is in the midst of developing an introductory course on urban agriculture in the built environment. For the past year a group of GRHC members with the support of the GRHC staff has been brainstorming ideas, researching urban agriculture projects, systems and techniques and building a framework around the development of an urban agriculture course to be presented at CitiesAlive!, GRHC’s annual conference and trade show to be held in Vancouver, British Columbia from November 30 to December 3rd, 2010. The Committee’s vision is that this introductory program will be a launching pad for the long-term development of training and ultimately lead to the creation of many successful urban agriculture installations in cities across North America for years to come. We view our efforts to create an urban agriculture course with GRHC a trailblazing venture which can lead to millions of pounds of food being grown in the future. We anticipate high levels of interest in the course, and encourage anyone who is interested in urban agriculture to attend and participate. Keith Agoada is the founder and president of Needham, Massachussetts-based Sky Vegetables. 30 LIVING ARCHITECTURE MONITOR SUMMER 2010 http://www.GREENROOFS.ORG http://www.greenroofs.org
