Founded in 2014, Agritecture Consulting (formerly Blue Planet Consulting) provides advisory services in the design, planning, implementation and operation of urban agriculture projects.
We offer our clients the tools, data, ideas, network, and expertise needed to ensure their success. We consult globally and are based in New York City.
Agritecture Consulting’s expertise is in controlled environment agriculture (CEA), a rapidly developing industry that is gaining traction and predicted to be valued at $9 billion by 2020. Our project experience includes hydroponic greenhouses, vertical farms, and sustainability learning labs.
Our mission is to empower impact-driven organizations to develop feasible urban farming operations, turning their business ideas into practical and sustainable realities.
A world where commercial urban agriculture is economically feasible, reduces the carbon impact of the food system, and improves food security.
