Indoor farming has created a lot of buzz recently. In this lecture, Julie Buisson will discuss the promises and shortcomings of indoor farming. As well as some of the common claims around sustainability, labor, and production made my indoor farmers. Julie will then go over her experience teaching indoor farming to youth with emotional and behavioral health needs, and the role of horticultural therapy as a promising vehicle for workforce development in vulnerable populations. Finally, together we will look at some of the key areas of indoor farming, in which innovation and ethical questions must be addressed.
