We help clients turn their urban agriculture ideas into realities.

Agritecture was founded by Henry Gordon-Smith in 2014 (originally “Blue Planet Consulting”) to help entrepreneurs navigate the crucial planning stage for their urban farming business and avoid costly mistakes. Since then, Agritecture has grown into the world’s leading advisory firm on urban and controlled environment agriculture, working with clients of all types - from entrepreneurs, to investors, to technology providers - in more than 25 countries.

To continue highlighting the latest innovation and pushing the industry toward greater transparency, our content team maintains an active blog, social media presence, and email newsletter, counting more than 125,000 active followers. In 2020, we launched our own software platform, Agritecture Designer.

Agritecture is comprised of a global team of interdisciplinary consultants that rely on an ever-expanding dataset and a proven methodology, having completed more than 150 projects to date.
