Urban Agriculture: Food, Sustainability, and Tampa Bay

Join Rick Martinez, founder of Sweetwater Organic Community Farm, for a discussion on urban agriculture in Tampa Bay, from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. Founded 21 years ago, Sweetwater is one of the pioneers in the urban agriculture movement. During this discussion, we'll consider why urban agriculture is important to our community, how food and the concept of sustainability are linked, and how we can achieve a sustainable food system. Come learn how Sweetwater began as an urban agriculture project, how you can support urban agriculture, and learn about other local contributors to this movement.
