“Food for Thought” with Richard Hayden, Head Gardener
The food on our plate evolves as technology advances, alternative diets are sought, and the climate changes. Join us on a special tour and discover the connections between food and natural history.

Discussion: 6:30 pm
“How Green is Your Plate” with Rachel Surls, Ph.D. and Judith Gerber
For almost all of human history, the food we ate came from no farther than a day’s search. Now, food zips around the world. But with climate change and drought, that may change. What does this mean for food in Southern California, where we once grew almost everything? Can we shorten our supply lines to feed ourselves again, if we have to?
