Spreading the Message on Urban Agriculture

Could Washington, D.C., Become the American Capital of Urban Farming? That's the title of the article by Steve Holt, who originally caught Axum's presentation during the livestreaming of the first annual Food Tank Summit. Here's an excerpt:

This is where Axum and the University of the District of Columbia come in: As a land-grant university, UDC must provide educational opportunities both on campus and in the surrounding community. One of the school's focuses of late has been urban agriculture production and nutritional security in D.C.—where rates of obesity hover close to 75 percent in some wards—a charge the university’s president personally tasked Axum to focus on. 

Thanks to Steve Holt for such a great article and helping CAUSES to spread our message. If you did not get the chance to livestream Che's 2015 Food Summit presentation, watch it now!
