“The Urban Food Revolution: Changing the Way We Design Cites” presented by Peter Ladner, Author, The Urban Food Revolution & Business in Vancouver.

When we are faced with an ever increasing demand on the global food supply (increase in 70% needed by 2050), decreasing farmland, and localised droughts, urban farming provides a potentially substantial, alternative local source of produce for cities. Peter Ladner provided an engaging presentation of several alternative models for urban food production from community gardens and supermarket rooftops, to Kelowna’s own success story: cycling backyard farmer, Curtis Stone.
