    1. San Diego County Agriculture – How Sustainable and Resilient are we?
      5:30 pm – 8:00 pm

      Event Summary (from event website):

      San Diego’s Agriculture industry is both robust and challenged. This $5 billion industry includes extensive flower production, dairy farms, citrus and avocado acreage.

      San Diego’s Mediterranean-like climate is home to more than 6,000 farmers who make their living on 6,565 small family farms, 65% of which are less than nine acres. The high cost of water (more than $600/acre foot) and land make San Diego farming here expensive and encourage growers to raise products with a high dollar value per acre.

      In the coming years, climate change and water scarcity challenge this industry. More and more citizens are educated about genetically modified organisms (GM0) and organic growing processes. Farmers markets are popular but what else can be done to increase demand, reduce resource use, and allow us to remain sustainable?

       
      How prepared is San Diego agriculture industry to face these challenges and increased demand?

      Where San Diego County Ranks Nationally

      • 12th largest farm economy among more than 3000 counties
      • More small farms (less than 10 acres) than any other county
      • #1 producer of avocados
      • #1 producer of nursery crops
      • #1 in number of part-time farmers
      • #2 in acres of guavas, pomegranates, limes, and macadamias
      • #2 in farms with women as principal operator
      • #3 in honey production
      • #5 in lemons
      • #9 in strawberries
      • #10 in egg-laying hens

      Join us and our guests speakers who are at the center of these issues. Click here to register!
