GSD Executive Education Course: Urban Agriculture and the Form of the City

Urban agriculture is rapidly joining the fabric of cities as an economically viable contributor to sustainable buildings, sites and neighborhoods. Major opportunities are emerging to shift the image of architecture and open space in urban areas—while benefitting the communities within them. New methods and technologies are now available to architects, landscape architects, and urban designers to successfully incorporate viable, successful agriculture into their projects. This course includes detailed case studies and technical information for planning and design professionals to help craft imaginative and sustainable dimensions to their projects.

Instructors: Steven Cecil, President, The Cecil Group, Boston, MA; Marie Mercurio, Senior Planner, Boston Redevelopment Authority, Boston, MA; April Philips, Principal, April Philips Design Works, San Rafael, CA; Lauren Rathmell, Greenhouse Director/Founding Member, Lufa Farms, Montreal, Quebec.
