CUESA’s Food Shed gives curious farmers markets shoppers the opportunity to deepen their understanding of sustainable food systems. This education program includes rotating interactive exhibits that focus on a particular food issue.

Visit the Food Shed this month to learn about biodiversity on the plate. As the industrial food system promotes monoculture and narrows the genetic foundation of our food crops, farmers markets explode with variety. Our biodiversity exhibit celebrates the bounty with fun activities and games to test your knowledge of lesser-known varieties of fruit and vegetables. You’ll also sample an unusual variety of produce from the market.

All events take place at the CUESA Classroom (look for our tent with the banner!) and are free and open to the public.
