Environmental Justice Speakers Series presents Why Food Sustainability Matters

Agribusiness and the meat industry have become increasingly driven purely by profit without regard to the effect it has on our health or the environment. We cannot continue down this destructive path. Learn why food sustainability matters and is one of the most important issues of today as we discuss solutions that are currently being practiced in the community.

Panelists:

Tawna Vargo- Food Systems Curriculum & Demonstration Garden Coordinator, La Mesa Verde at Sacred Heart "Food Justice Through Backyard Gardens"

Mark Medeiros- Co-founder of Veggielution, "Building a Stronger Community Through Farming"

Joyce M Eden- San Jose Area LabelGMOs Coordinator "Organic Farming vs GMOs"

Prof. Joanna Ahlum- Lecturer, Environmental Studies & Sciences Department at Santa Clara University, "Cultivating a Healthy Agriculture"
