Maximise your time in San Francisco by joining fellow delegates on a pre-summit tour of two regional agricultural highlights: The Plenty Vertical Farming Facility and the Clos de la Tech Vineyard & Winery.
10.00am Pick Up from the San Francisco Airport Marriott Waterfront Hotel
10.30-12.00pm Tour of the Plenty Vertical Farming Facility (formerly See Jane Farm)
Delegates will be given an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the farm, where Plenty is building a revolutionary system using technology and plant science to give crops the perfect environment to flourish – with no pesticides or GMOs. This system will deliver up to 350 x the yield per square foot of land, use 1% as much water and cut thousands of miles out of the supply chain.
12.30-1.30pm Lunch at “Alice’s Restaurant”
A casual lunch featuring locally-sourced ingredients at this local landmark restaurant.
2.00-4.15pm Tour of the Clos De La Tech Vineyard and Winery
Clos De La Tech operates one of the most advanced wineries in the region. The tour will include a “sturdy boots” walk through the vineyard, followed by a tour of the winery, including the Integrated Fermentation Control System invented by owner TJ Rodgers for UC Davis. Delegates will be invited to taste a selection of wines, while learning about the vineyard’s precision irrigation project from technology provider WaterBit.
5.00 pm Arrive Back at the San Francisco Airport Marriott Waterfront Hotel
Coach transport and lunch are included in the tour price of $295.
