Long Beach urban agriculture
Sustainable Long Beach presents a free screening of the award-winning documentary Growing Cities on November 12 from 5 – 8 PM at the Main Library (100 Pacific Ave).
“Growing Cities” examines how cities across the United States are taking food security into their own hands, using innovative approaches to grow food in urban and industrial environments.
This First Friday, you are invited to meet Long Beach farmers and eat the fresh food they grow in expert preparations by Bixby Knolls restaurants.
From edible flowers to habanero honey: the chefs at Bixby restaurants will be highlighting Long Beach grown fruits and vegetables in special dishes for the evening.
