Field-trips from the North Bay to the Central Valley proved to be a terrific success for the attendees, despite unfavorable weather conditions.
The organizations leading the tours did a fantastic job of bringing the attendees into the community, teaching them about the significance of our food and where it comes from, and providing a warm atmosphere to spend the day.
Food First, the organizer of the food sovereignty tours, will continue to lead food sovereignty tours worldwide and we encourage you to check out their website for additional opportunities.
Locally, Bay Area Green Tours offers educational tours that demonstrate the sustainable economy in action, inspire support of local green businesses and occasionally showcase sustainable food projects.
