Fair Food

On Wednesday, I went to the Powerhouse Arena to see Dr. Oran Hesterman, CEO and President of the Fair Food Network, speak about his latest book “Fair Food, Growing a Healthier Sustainably Food System for All”.  Dr. Heterman’s message is that we need to not only be conscious consumers, but we need to take the next step to become active and engaged citizens.   FUSE students understand this message, and are working to develop best management practices (BMP) for rooftop agriculture.  The BMP for our rooftop agricultural system takes into account affects on the ecosystem, nutritional content, total yield, and cost.    You can check out a trailer for the book here:
