Victory Gardens, The Sequel - New Urban AG, Scaling Locally Grown Food


Victory Gardens, The Sequel - This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. What will the farm of the future look like? In this emotional talk, Jeff Olson helps us understand the conflict, struggle and unintended consequences we confront in our health, economy, and food systems today. Could vertical gardening in greenhouses emerge as a triple bottom line solution to these challenges? Jeff Olson is an accidental urban agriculture activist. Like many, he grew up surrounded by agriculture and ran away from it. Some 30 years later, when his business mentor and corporate partner bought a patented way to grow food, Jeff saw an opportunity to leverage design, grow beautiful food, make growing it cool and scale it.
