SBAFA Presents the Farm to Fork Series, Mar. 23 & Apr. 6

The Santa Barbara County Ag Futures Alliance (AFA) is proud to announce the kick-off to their agricultural education campaign, Agriculture in Santa Barbara County: The Field to Fork Series. The goal of the four-part series is to inform and educate local residents about food and farming practices in the County, looking at agriculture from the production, processing, distribution, and consumer perspectives, among others. Four local experts: Cathy Fisher, Santa Barbara County Agricultural Commissioner; Victor Tognazzini, Gold Coast Packing, Santa Maria; Robert Abbott, Hilltop and Canyon Farms, Carpinteria; and Dr. Neil MacDougall, Agribusiness Professor at Cal Poly, SLO, will provide the audience with background on issues related to and affecting agriculture. Topics will include local agricultural statistics, farming in today’s economic climate, regulatory realities, environmental resources and considerations, and the future of farming, among others.
The 4-part series will kick-off Wednesday, March 23rd from 6-8pm at the Faulkner Gallery in the Santa Barbara Public Library, Central location and again on Wednesday, April 6th from 6-8pm in Shepard Hall at the Santa Maria Public Library.
