On Sunday, October 7, the city of Berkeley honored CASFS by declaring it Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems Day. The proclamation stated that “the Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems at UC Santa Cruz, in the first UC effort to focus on sustainable agriculture, has a program that is essential in the Bay Area’s continual search for sustainable food systems.

The honor was promoted by Apprenticeship alumni Joy Moore, who, along with Herman Yee, also organized a reunion of Bay Area alumni to coincide with CASFS Day. You can read the full proclamation here. Many thanks to Joy and Herman for their efforts on behalf of CASFS and their work in pursuit of a more sustainable food system.
