Food and Farming on the Urban Edge

Head in the Sky, Feed in the Mud
2008–2009 Lecture Series, Institute at the Golden Gate
Presented in collaboration with Conservation International

“Can San Francisco feed itself from food grown and produced within a 100-mile radius?” Results of a recent study on the topic are both disturbing and encouraging. Co-author Sibella Kraus, Director of the Agriculture in Metropolitan Regions Program, UC Berkeley, will introduce the findings. Woody Tasch, venture capital investor, entrepreneur, and author of Slow Money, Investing as if Food, Farms, and Fertility Mattered will discuss investing in a regional food system. If farmland is lost, so is food-slow or otherwise. Jeremy Madsen, Executive Director of Greenbelt Alliance, will describe the status of farmland preservation in the region and state. Co-sponsored by the Institute at the Golden Gate, Slow Food Marin, and Cavallo Point, the Lodge at the Golden Gate. A no-host reception of local food and drink will be provided. Co- Sponsored by the Institute at the Golden Gate, Slow Food Marin and San Francisco, and the Cavallo Point - the Lodge at the Golden Gate.
