Like air, water, and shelter, food is essential for life.
Food plays a central role in our health,
communities, customs, heritage, and culture.

Come join local experts in sharing their knowledge, experience, and success stories in an array of urban food production topics. Presenters will discuss urban gardening, harvesting and marketing, access to healthy food, and the need to plan for urban food systems. We’ll share how current programs work and discuss a vision for the future.
