April 3, 2011 (San Diego) -- On April 9 and 10, hundreds of San Diegans are expected to convene at University Ave. and Fairmount in City Heights to attend workshops, share knowledge, and discuss the sustainability, accessibility, and health of our food system in San Diego and around the world.
The free event will include workshops, speeches and discussions covering issues such as do-it-yourself fermenting and canning, turning your lawn into a vegetable garden, identifying edible native plants, the Farm Bill, how to live and eat more sustainably in your daily life, and more.
The event is organized by a coalition of community members closely connected with groups such as International Rescue Committee, San Diego Sustainable Roots Project, San Diego Food Not Lawns, Activist San Diego, Slow Food Urban San Diego and Food Not Bombs.
It is free and open to anyone who would like to attend. The event will also include live entertainment, discounted parking, free and discounted meals, kids’ activities as well as two keynote speakers: City Heights Urban Farmer Bilali Muya, and People’s Produce Project member and community leader Diane Moss.
