The Fields team chats with Jeffrey Landau, Director of Business Development at Agritecture Consulting. Jeffrey has been on an exciting road trip to document farming in the United States, both urban and rural, indoor and outdoor. He’s been conducting his own interviews of farmers and agricultural policy makers, and he’s sharing a series of conversations about urban agriculture with us. Before we meet some of Jeffrey’s contacts in urban ag, however, we thought we’d talk to him about his own career. How did he become a full-time, professional consultant in urban and indoor farming? Why did he leave New York City to tour the country in a camper van? What are some trends he’s seeing out on the road, both inspiring and worrying? What is he hopeful for in the world of urban agriculture in NYC, in the year ahead? For more of Jeffrey’s work, check out his road-trip blog, Farms Unknown. And don’t forget to subscribe to Fields!
