    About the Panel Discussion
    The Center for Urban Business Entrepreneurship (CUBE) will host a panel and networking event to discuss the growth of the urban agriculture industry in Brooklyn and greater New York City communities. The panel will feature industry leaders and policy experts who will explore the technology and market forces driving innovation in urban agriculture, and chart a legislative path forward to expand existing policy, foster the creation of food production growth opportunities in local communities, and nurture thriving new agriculture businesses.

    Topics will include ways in which city officials and policymakers should address the economic and nutritional needs of local communities and the input from innovators and policy experts to aid in the legislative process. CUBE Fellow Tatiana Pawlowski ’17 will discuss her white paper, “From Food Deserts to Just Deserts: Expanding Urban Agriculture In New York City Through Sustainable Policy."
