Welcome to the first Mid-Atlantic Urban Agriculture Summit! This event launched five years ago and was formerly known as the Virginia Ag Summit. New in 2021, organizers at Virginia Cooperative Extension have extended it to the entire Mid-Atlantic region to facilitate the sharing of even more knowledge and experiences. We invite urban farmers, gardeners, policymakers, government officials, foodies and other interested individuals to three partial days of:

  • Learning about one of agriculture’s fastest-growing sectors

  • Virtual tours of successful urban farms

  • Virtual networking

This year’s topics will include:

  • Urban Agriculture and Food Security

  • Innovations in Urban Ag: Business, Technology, and Policy

  • Urban Community Gardening
