Toronto Urban Growers, the Ontario Association of Landscape Architects, Carrot City, and the Department of Architectural Science at Ryerson University are hosting an upcoming event, Urban Agriculture in Review: A Decade of Design, Future Prospects on Thursday, March 28, from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., at the Ryerson Department of Architectural Science (325 Church Street, Toronto).

The public is invited to join as the event launches GROUND magazine’s spring ‘CONSUME’ issue with a round-table of some of the city’s most experienced practitioners and educators, who will discuss their unique experiences in designing for urban agriculture, the opportunities for designers to contribute to shaping projects on the ground, and the challenges faced so far and still to be addressed.

The event will be moderated by noted author and GROUND editor Lorraine Johnson, and will be introduced by Carrot City co-curator Joe Nasr. The event comes a decade after the launch of the seminal ‘Carrot City’ exhibition, which explored the relationship between urban design and food production.
