The Rebirth of An Agricultural Empire? From Top Food Producer to Food Desert. What's Next for Growing Food in Los Angeles County

From top agricultural county in the US from 1910-1955 to food desert. Until very recently, parkway gardens were still illegal in the City of Los Angeles, and residents were being issued $400 fines for planting edible parkway gardens in areas that are considered food deserts. Come to The Shed 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.

Learning from the Most Sustainable Place on Earth with Cuban Permaculturist Roberto Pérez

The Shed hosts Roberto Perez, Cuban environmental educator featured in the award winning documentary, "The Power of Community, How Cuba Survived Peak Oil" currently in the U.S. promoting the 11th International Permaculture Convergence (IPC11) to be held in Cuba in November of 2013.
The Living Planet Report from the World Wildlife Fund in 2007 identified Cuba as the only sustainable country in the world.  The study involved two key parameters for measuring sustainable development, a commitment to "improving the quality of human life while living within the carrying capacity of supporting ecosystems".  Cuba was the ONLY country on earth to achieve satisfactory benchmarks in both criteria for sustainable development.
