At this year’s national American Society of Landscape Architects, Diane Dale will join April Phillips and Jacob Voit on a panel: Food Cities: Designing Edible Landscapes for Urban Environments.
The 21st century sustainable city requires the merging of urbanism with sustainable food systems. Edible landscapes are a movement in transition and sprouting up as a response to the slow food movement and living a greener lifestyle. These urban agricultural landscapes are fast becoming iconic media darlings and are demonstrating that they are far more than growing vegetables on abandoned lots. This session will present case studies, strategies and tools that demonstrate the path forward to re-invite food back into the city.
The conference will be held in San Diego from October 30 through November 2.
