CAUSES TV: Urban Food Production and Designing for Sustainability

Are agriculture and food production a viable concept as a means of sustainability in our urban neighborhoods? Is it possible to grown enough healthy food with the available land in our city centers to meet the demands of an even increasing population?

On this edition of CAUSES are two people who say yes to both questions and will explore the reasons behind their viewpoints. Steve Moore is Director of the Sustainable Food Systems Program, in the Department of Environmental Studies, at Elon University, North Carolina; and Che Axum, is Director of the Center for Urban Agriculture, in the College Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences here at the University of the District of Columbia.
