This is the final call for registration to attend the Seedstock "Sustainable Agriculture Innovation Conference" on Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2012 at the UCLA Anderson School of Management.
By the year 2050, it is expected that earth’s present population of 6 billion will reach more than 9 billion persons. In anticipation of this remarkable worldwide growth, and the potential ramifications that could follow in its wake, Seedstock seeks to foster innovation and sustainability in agriculture to insure the residents of this planet are fed simply, organically, and with as little negative impact to the environment as possible.
To that end, the conference program will focus on the economic opportunities as well as the environmental and societal benefits of embracing, developing, and investing in sustainable farms, practices, technologies, and start-up companies.
Urban agriculture experts and aquaponics entrepreneurs, in addition to sustainable agricultural investors and organic and local buyers and sourcers, will offer presentations on a variety of topics, including: digital technology and agriculture; scalable sustainable agriculture solutions and local food systems; the social and economic impact of urban farming; sourcing sustainable and organic produce; vertical farming; and, the role of private investors in sustainable agriculture.
