Special thanks to Student Community Services and Hopedance Films for their free showings of the films “King Corn” and “The Real Dirt on Farmer John”on May 21 and 28, respectively. As illustrated in both films, now is the time to work toward developing a more sustainable food system. To accomplish this goal, we must understand where our food comes from as well as request and purchase sustainable products.
A great way to start is by becoming a member of the Cal Poly Organic Farm’s Community Supported Agriculture Program, which is now accepting new members for the summer quarter. Volunteers are welcome and students can receive academic credit for working on the farm through the Organic Enterprise Course (CRSC 203).
