Paradise Found -Local, Organic sustainable Food in San Diego
Businesses are popping up that cater to converting your water thirsty lawn into edible landscaping. While students clamor to start farms on campuses and faculty develop curricula for sustainable urban agriculture, communities everywhere flock to farmers’ markets and organic food. Delve into the reasons for these trends and discuss why they are occurring with such demand now. Are these initiatives and aims themselves sustainable? In pursuit of the answer, not only we will read selections from pertinent current literature, we will also visit several examples of urban farming in San Diego County from colleges to yards, and highlight organizations and regulations that are making this possible. Along the way we might even get to sample some tasty, locally grown, organic
food and beverages.
