MetroAg Webcast: Recipies for feeding growing metropolitan populations

Date: September 10, 2012
Location: MetroAg Webcast: Recipies for feeding growing metropolitan populations virtual

As global metropolitan populations increase, insufficient food production, unsustainable agricultural practices and other economic hardships threaten food security–or access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food–in these regions.

Individuals who would like to take part in a discussion about addressing this topic can join a free, live webcast on food security offered by the Michigan State University (MSU) College of Agriculture and Natural Resources and set for Sept. 10 at 11 a.m. (U.S. EDT).

 “Bio Intensive Agriculture & Food Security” will focus on a project to provide access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food to a community in South Africa. It will be presented by Michael Leech, a horticulturist and doctoral student of urban agriculture in municipal environments in Durban, South Africa.

This webcast series is a continuation of the non-credit online course, Metropolitan Agriculture Value Creation, developed by MSU in collaboration with the MetroAg Innoversity, a global network of international leaders in metropolitan agriculture.

Anyone interested in this topic is encouraged to join the webcast. Registration is not required. For details, please visit http://metroagcourse.com/webcasts/.
