In modern America approximately 50 million Americans, including about one-fourth of all children, suffer from food insecurity. The food that is available is often unhealthy and produced in an industrial-agricultural economy that is damaging to both farmworkers and ecosystems. Community and urban farming offer some solutions to those problems while also helping urban populations prepare for the unpredictable impacts of climate change. UIW Mabee Library Auditorium.
