This event takes place in San Jose.

The South Bay offers some of the best soils and climate for urban gardening and farming, and numerous recently formed organizations take advantage of this, approaching urban agriculture from perspectives including food access, sustainability and building community. Learn about three existing projects and the opportunities and challenges they face.

+ Zach Lewis / Garden to Table
+ Craig Diserens / Village Harvest
+ Greg Leonard / Full Circle Farm

Co-sponsored by the Northern Section of the APA California Chapter. CM I 1.0

This event is part of the Around the Table festival of activities that celebrates and explores the role food plays in our lives. 38 Bay Area organizations, including SPUR, are presenting projects by local farmers, artists, designers, architects, performers, and activists through the spring of 2014.
