Science on Tap: Farming and the City

Connecting links between urban food system and environmental outcomes
Presented by Dr. Pamela Martin, Associate Professor of Earth Sciences, and Director, the Center for Earth and Environmental Sciences at IUPUI.
Local, sustainable food production is cited as one strategy for addressing urban health and environmental concerns.  Local food has the potential to reduce the energy needed to grow and transport food – but does it actually do so?  In this presentation Dr. Martin will share research exploring the environmental costs and benefits of local, urban agriculture, and share tips regarding how can we make urban gardens -- and our food choices -- more efficient  in their environmental outcomes.

There is no charge to attend the event and appetizers will be provided.  Seating is limited so please register today.
