How can we grow and enjoy better food, closer to home, further into the future? MIT Media Lab’s Kevin Slavin hosts a conversation with Caleb Harper from MIT Media Lab's CityFarm project, the Barbarian Group's Benjamin Palmer, Andras Forgacs of Modern Meadow, who is growing victimless meat in a lab, and food artist, educator, and entrepreneur Emilie Baltz. The discussion will address issues of sustainable urban farming, closed ecosystems, technology, food supply chains and the broad environmental and humanitarian implications.
Beyond that however, the conversation will also address how these changes in food production will change what we find delicious ... and the other way around.
