Japan: Agriculture and Entrepreneurship

Categories: East Asia, Japan, Environment, Food, Ideas

Barnali and Anirvan [1] (who traveled from the U.S. to Japan by ship [2]!) blog about interesting Agriculture 2.0 projects that they encountered at green drinks Tokyo [3]. “About sixty young people crowded into an event space to hear speakers talk about “Agriculture 2.0,” projects connecting urban dwellers with healthy local food, while supporting farmers and educating consumers. […] Our favorite project? A for-profit startup that brings displays full of fresh local produce into office buildings, letting workers easily buy healthy snacks.”
