Aglanta Announces Panel About Closed Vertical Farming Operations

The event is highlighted by three vertical growing operations that weren't forced to shut down.

February 2, 2017

ATLANTA, GA - Recently, Aglanta's organizers posted an open letter from Paul Hardej about the closure of FarmedHere’s 90,000 square foot Bedford Park facility. After the post, they received inquiries about how and why this happened - and what does this mean for the industry?

Those of you were who were left wondering these question are in luck: Agritecture is pleased to announce that itwill be moderating an exclusive panel - An Examination of Shuttered Vertical Farming Facilities - according to a press release. This panel will held at the Aglanta Conference on Feb. 19 and panelists will include:

Podponics and LocalGarden, like FarmedHere, each operated a vertical farming facility that is now closed. Podponics operated a large facility in Atlanta before declaring bankruptcy and closing their Atlanta facility in June 2016 - while Local Garden operated a large rooftop vertical farm in Vancouver that declared bankruptcy back in 2014.

If you clicked on any of those above links, you may have found you have some questions that you would like answered from our panelists. If so, please comment or drop us a note for what you’d like to know as we prepare for this discussion. There will also be a subsequent Q & A for those in attendance at #Aglanta.
