About the Event
The Cultivating Food Justice Conference is a two-day event designed to empower San Diego communities to create sustainable, locally based food systems that provide healthy and affordable food to all residents. The event will be held at San Diego City College, where the Urban Farm Program was established last June through the efforts of students, faculty and the community.

Today, in the face of climate change and ever-rising incidents of nutrition-related chronic illnesses, it’s crucial that we look to urban agriculture and local food systems to reduce carbon emissions and build our city’s internal capacity to provide healthy and affordable food to all its residents. Thankfully, our county is well positioned to address these concerns. With more than 30 farmers’ markets, the 2nd highest concentration of family farms in the US, and blessed with four growing seasons, San Diego is rife with opportunity to support local agriculture.

We invite you to join us during this two-day event to learn about how we can build local food systems and healthy communities. From hands-on cooking, panel discussions led by community leaders, and gardening workshops, to live music and entertainment, the Cultivating Food Justice Conference promises to be an educational and empowering event open to the entire San Diego Community. Pre-Registration is advised to ensure there is sufficient food for everyone.
