Sustainable Agriculture

Tuesday, Nov 28, 2006

Sustainable cities need sustainable agriculture. If you're in NYC, here's a chance to learn about a better way to grow food and fiber from Wes Jackson, MacArthur award winner and President of the Kansas-based Land Institute. The goal of The Land Institute "is to improve the security of our food and fiber source by reducing soil erosion, decreasing dependency upon petroleum and natural gas, and relieving the agriculture-related chemical contamination of our land and water. Our specific research is an innovation for agriculture, using "nature as the measure" to develop mixed perennial grain crops as food for humans where farmers use nature as a standard or measure in making their agronomic decisions."

Sponsor: New School Tishman Environment and Design Center

Date: Tuesday, November 28, 2006, 6:30 pm
