Urbanvine.co was created in June of 2016 to help urban dwellers learn how to start urban farming without any previous experience.
This effort started with a few short, less technical blog posts:
As the site grew, we discovered that "urban farming" was actually a general term that can include a wide variety of "small scale agriculture" concepts, including:
- Grow Lights
- Vertical Farming / Indoor Farming
We discovered there were thousands of people online who wanted to learn more not just about urban farming, but these very specific, more technical aspects of small-scale agricultural production.
As a result our published blog posts became more focused:
At the same time, Urban Vine Co began to interview industry experts in an effort to provide a new perspective to beginners:
Over 25 interviews so far have been conducted with industry leaders, academic experts, and other influencers in horticulture.
All of the site content was collected and organized into our first product, launched late in 2017, Urban Vine Academy, an online membership area where students can follow step-by-step guides to build hydroponic systems, use grow lights for indoor farming, and grow their first ever crop!
