Increasing media attention to urban agriculture has mirrored the public’s growing interest in the topic.

Moderated by food writer Andy Smith, this panel focuses on the relationship between media, advocacy, and the urban agriculture movement. The panel includes an artist and filmmaker, the producer of an internet broadcast network focusing on urban farming, an organizer of a farm boot camp for urban chefs, an expert on the internet and agriculture, and the publisher of a food magazine.
