Melissa and Wythe catch up with their friend and collaborator Jeffrey Landau, Director of Business Development at Agritecture Consulting. Jeffrey is an expert in controlled environment agriculture (CEA, or indoor farming), urban agriculture, and urban agriculture policy. He’s spent the last year traveling to farms and gardens across the U.S., working much of that time with different stakeholders in the city of Dallas to craft an urban agriculture plan, and he shares with us some of his reflections on urban agriculture policy around the country. We talk about current trends in urban agriculture, differences between UA sectors in different cities, the importance of land trusts, and what the future may hold, especially as climate disruption intensifies. It’s an edifying conversation, as always. For more of Jeffrey’s travel writing and work on urban agriculture, subscribe to his Substack feed.
