UC Gill Tract Community Farm | San Pablo Ave and Marin Ave, Albany, CA
Submitted by the Event Organizer
California has long been the top producer of food and fiber in the US, though it is home to only 4% of the nation’s farms. Despite climate change and political upheaval creating increasingly difficult conditions for those who would coax seed from the soil, California farmers continue to rise to the challenge, with essential contributions from urban farmers, immigrants, and others working “on the edge”. Panelists will share stories of success and identify leverage points for future innovation, alliance building, and cultural renewal, leaving ample time for questions brought by the audience.
