Pop-up Food Shed - Biodiversity

Saturday, April 28, 2018 - 11:30am to 1:30pm

The Food Shed gives curious shoppers the opportunity to deepen their understanding of sustainable food systems. This education program includes rotating interactive exhibits that focus on a theme.

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 purple carrots from McGinnis Ranch.

Free and open to the public. Find us in the CUESA classroom on the south plaza in front of the Ferry Building.
