12 Steps To Becoming An Urban or Vertical Farmer

"What if I can't make all the sessions?"

We get it, you have a lot going on. If your want to re-watch all of the sessions (like I'll be doing), there's only one way to get lifetime access. 

It's called The Vertical Farming Summit All-Access Pass and it lets you view the entire summit any time without ever setting foot in a convention center.

You can learn on your own schedule.

And you don't need to pay $1000+ in admission prices and other expenses.

There's no plane ticket, hotel room, or overpriced travel food. 

Having the summit online means that you don’t need to leave your farm, your day job, or your family to learn something new about the future of food. 

Each speaker gives expert info, actionable advice, and a clear call to action after each interview to help you on your journey.

When you sign up for the All-Access Pass you’ll get every video interview and bonus resource delivered right to your inbox.

Watch at Your Own Convenience

Don’t let watching the summit masterclasses, panels and the advanced training sessions be one more thing that drops off your to-do list. Instead, here’s an opportunity to invest in yourself.

With the All-Access Pass, you can watch and study this powerful material you’re at your best and ready to learn.

Now you need to take the next step...

Maybe you have no idea where to start...

... or you might not have a profitable business yet. 

... or maybe you do, and you're to learn from other successful entrepreneurs. 

All of this is easier when you have the right people on your side.

Let's face it. There are a lot of indoor farms that are struggling to make it. 

Your guest speakers will teach you the lessons they have learned building successful companies and projects. Each speaker will help you get up to speed FAST. See below from a few people who are taking the charge...

Stephen RitzGreen Bronx Machine

"A seed well planted brings forth an epic crop."

Nick BurtonState of the Soil

"Most entrepreneurs and farmers can't afford to leave for a week to go to all of these conferences...The future of farming education is digital"


"People should think about vertical farming in a broader context than just growing lettuce. There are a lot of interesting technological applications that haven't even been explored yet."

Where will you be in 6-months?

Some people like the struggle. If that's you, the All-Access Pass isn't for you.

You probably know the type.

They are too busy to learn, or worse yet, they think they already know everything.

What will they say when you talk to them in a year? Probably the same thing they said before. Same problems, same excuses for not getting ahead.

They're the ones who wonder how a small network of people seem to capture all of the best opportunities. 

You won't be that person if you open ourself up to feedback and choose to learn something new. 

You are someone different. 

6-months from now you'll be having conversations with people about the REAL challenges in vertical farming and helping to solve them alongside industry leaders. 

You will be on your way to pursuing a career or a business with the mission of creating better food.

No guilt. No BS. Take action now. 

They are too busy to learn, or worse yet, they think they already know everything there is to know. Then you'll talk to them next year and they will still be in the same place, struggling with the same issues. Here's a picture of me on stage at the AVF Summit in Amsterdam 2016:

Meet Your Summit Host, Chris Powers.

Hey thanks for visiting The Vertical Farming Summit,

My name is Chris Powers and I'm on a mission to grow and promote vertical farming and CEA technologies. I started this virtual summit because I believe that indoor agriculture has the potential to do a lot of good for this world. I've already seen so many farms fail because they didn't have their tech or business strategies down right. That's why I want to help YOU get involved or succeed in vertical farming wherever you are in the world.

If you haven't already, sign up below to get free access to the live summit and updates on new speakers, bonuses, and contests as they are announced.
