Our  50th Anniversary

For 50 years the UCSC Farm and Garden and the Center for Agroecology & Sustainable Food Systems has been shaping the organic food movement through teaching, research and policy innovation.

It is time to celebrate all that we have accomplished over 5 decades and envision our next 50 years of working to develop a more sustainable, just food system. We hope you'll join us! Learn about special events and more taking place in 2017.
