If you’re going to be in the Los Angeles area on April 7, 2017, please join Robert Puro of Seedstock in a discussion of “The Future on Your Plate” as part of the First Fridays series at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles.
Date: April 7, 2017
Location: Natural History Museum of Los Angeles – 900 Exposition Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90007
Discussion Topic: It’s unlikely we’d trade the allure of crunchy, salty, tasty food for a single, daily capsule. But with climate change and drought, what choices will we have? Can technology keep us fed, if farm-to-table becomes lab-to-table? If you know your sci-fi, you know the future of food is a little pill.
LOS ANGELES, Ca. (March. 24, 2017) — Teams of local architects, engineers, developers, Los Angeles city officials, urban farmers, and others will compete next week to design and devise the best plan for sustainably growing food in urban environments. Sponsored at the gold level by the LA office of global architecture and design firm Perkins+Will, and co-organized by Agritecture.com, an online media outlet focused on urban and vertical farming; the sold-out “Agritecture Design Workshop” will give participants the opportunity to produce creative, yet practical, solutions for supporting urban agriculture in the LA metropolitan area. The winning team will be selected based on how well their urban farm concept localizes food production within the city while decreasing resource consumption and increasing social cohesion.
Food related endeavors that focus on community development and engagement — from community gardens and urban farms to workforce development programs — play an essential role in enhancing food security, educating citizens about where there food comes from, and strengthening food equity.
To address the role that community gardens, workforce development, and increasing food access play in strengthening communities and local food systems Seedstock’s ‘Future of Food – Community Development Field Trip’ on March 17, 2017 will provide attendees with an opportunity to learn from and interact with leading experts in the field.
