The Rebirth of An Empire: The Past, Present Future of Urban Agriculture in Los Angeles County
"Until the 1950s, Los Angeles County was the top agricultural county in the U.S. From approximately 1910 to 1955, this was it; it was bigger than Iowa or any of those Midwestern states in terms of its agriculture. We grew everything here." Rachel Surls
Until very recently parkway gardens were illegal in the City of Los Angeles, and renegade gardeners were getting $400 fines for planting edible parkway gardens in areas that are considered food deserts.
Join Rachel Surls, Marco Barrantes, Mud Baron and Hop Hopkins to discuss the past, present and future of urban agriculture in Los Angeles, and how we can shape current policy to encourage our communities to grow food, not lawns.
