empowering urban food production, one site at a time ...
Introduction

Vision - We believe the most pressing problem in the world today is food security.  As a majority of the world population is now urban and large scale agriculture or conventional farming is increasingly at risk due to climate change, petroleum prices and food contamination; we must enable food production in urban centers. Our designs are based on utilizing state of the art technologies in a vertically oriented food production unit.

Mission – Urbaform Technologies will promote and provide superior technical solutions for addressing urban food production and collaterally; wellness, sustainability, energy and resource efficiency, while creating jobs and the repurposing of urban spaces and buildings.
