San Diego is home to a rich agricultural community. On any given day you can find a farmers markets where you can buy fresh produce directly from the farmer.

Community Supported Agriculture (SCA) programs and co-op buying leverages your food purchasing with other like-minded foodies to support these farmers and minimize the strain on your wallet.

As more San Diegans become educated about food issues they seek alternative sources for fresh, healthy food. Growing their own food at community gardens, hydroponic gardens and more backyard gardens is a trend we support.

Join us as we hear from community leaders who are working to improve the health of our city and the economy at the same time. Learn what you can do to eat local, more nutritious, less carbon intensive, fresher food right now!

-Dan Gibbs, CEO Home Town Farms

-Deris Jeannette, San Diego Distributor Tower Gardener
