Farming the Urban Edge - CCOF Annual Event 2014
Wednesday, March 5th 8:30 am - 8:30 pm
CCOF invites you to join us in exploring “Farming the Urban Edge,” the theme of our 2014 annual meeting, bus tour, and reception. These events will take place in conjunction with Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, California and provide a unique opportunity to see how urban agricultural production – and organic in particular – is evolving to meet demands of the one of the world’s largest urban marketplaces.
The morning program will include keynote speaker Rachel Surls, Ph.D., LA Cooperative Extension agent with the University of California and author of the forthcoming book tentatively titled From Cows to Concrete. Dr. Surls will speak about the history of agriculture in the greater Los Angeles area.
We will then tour the agricultural features of Orange County’s Great Park (former home of the El Toro Marine Corps Air Station), which now houses a backyard garden demonstration site, a veteran’s farm re-training program, and 100 acres of organic fruit and vegetable production managed by former California Secretary of Agriculture AG Kawamura’s Orange County Produce. The bus tour will also include lunch at 123 Farm at Highland Springs Resort and a presentation from Dr. Raju Pandey, who is currently researching the Asian Citrus Psyllid at Y&V Farm, a CCOF-certified wholesale fruit producer just minutes from downtown Riverside.
Upon return to Anaheim, participants will attend a reception featuring organic food and drink – “The Organic Palate: Farm to City.” For registration information and details click here.
