Lecture: Discuss current issues related to the development of foodsheds in the U.S. Lecture generously sponsored by the The Heller Foundation of San Diego.
Global climate change, competition for use of cropland, population growth, and aging farmers all raise serious questions about our nation’s ability to feed itself over time. Moreover, the relationship between health and diet makes it essential that we focus greater attention on access to healthful, nutritious, and fresh food.
Heightened media focus and public interest on food and farming, and a vast network of dynamic community-based organizations reflect that the time for change has arrived.
The panel, resulting from the Developing Sustainable Foodsheds Conference in July 2009, will discuss current issues related to the development of foodsheds in the United States.
Date & Time: Tuesday, May 4, 6:30–8 p.m.
Location: Kaplan Theater at the San Diego Natural History Museum: 1788 El Prado, San Diego, CA 92101
