Chula Vista area evening to focus on farming

October 16, 2017 by  

A Chula Vista event will be exploring the world of farm-to-table food production, and all local farmers and other growers are welcome to attend.

The session, which is being brought to the community courtesy of the efforts of the Berry Good Food Foundation, will place the spotlight on the different issues faced by farmers in today’s world. The organizers noted that, as the area has one of the highest number of farms on a per capita basis of anywhere in the whole country, it needs to be a leader when it comes to the welfare and mental wellbeing of farmers and their families.

The evening will include a panel discussion with input from Eric Larson, who is the San Diego Country Farm Bureau’s executive director. He will be joined by activists, farmers and others who have an interest in the field and wish to find new ways of attracting younger people to the occupation. A part of the session will be dedicated to interactive lessons in animal butchering and cheesemaking. It will be hosted by Kitchens for Good, which transforms cosmetically blemished and surplus food into meals for area families in need. Logo design services for an event like this can be supplied by a printer from the local community.

Wednesday, November 15 has been selected as the date for this activity, which will be held at 404 Euclid Avenue in San Diego. Additional information can be found on the Berry Good Food Foundation website.
