Join The Movement To Change The Food System

July 11 @ 5:30 pm 7:30 pm PDT

NCCCA “Join The Movement To Change The Food System” Event flier.

Special guest Johnathan Zaidman

Through the lens of The Ecology Center, a 28-acre Regenerative Organic Certified Farm in San Juan Capistrano, we will explore the conversation on conventional, organic, and regenerative agriculture over the past 100 years.

The presentation will provide us with an in-depth look at how one urban farm in South Orange County is modeling regenerative agriculture and how it fits into mitigating the climate crisis.

The Ecology Center is an Orange County nonprofit organization whose mission is to inspire and educate people across Southern California communities in the areas of environmental sustainability and stewardship. By providing hands-on activities, quarterly exhibits, on-site demonstrations and informational seminars promoting practical and ecologically sound solutions for the household and community.

There will be time for questions from the audience.
