Feedback form is now closed.
The University of DC is building food hubs across the city -- centers where food production, distribution, processing and composting will take place side by side. Entrepreneurship is a huge part of the food hub goal, and UDC is eager to hear from food entrepreneurs about how these sites could serve you, as well as share the opportunity to collaborate to gain access to lower cost growing spaces, commercial kitchen space for new food processing businesses, and more. We'll share a bit about our current food hubs, the hope for the model, and the goal for collaboration with entrepreneurs. Come with your ideas of how you'd use aquaponics greenhouses, rooftop gardens and kitchens to prepare this produce!
