The Future of Food: Tradition Meets Technology

How does technology advance person-to-person outreach to germinate your urban farm, microgrower concept, or neighborhood network of sustainability?

Meet three young innovators and how they creatively use technology to connect people with food, resources, and the community. Hear how they developed partnerships to boost net success and funded their ventures through social media. Find out how a television producer develops personal connections beyond broadcast to diversify audience reach and promote innovators.
