In place of the traditional year-end wrap up, I'm welcoming 2012 with a look-ahead. Starting the new year off right is a class in the L.A. program at UC Davis, entitled Food and the Built Environment, which aims to explore the "connections between food and the way we live". I'll be guest lecturing along with a host of other designers, activists and planners. A much-belated wedding present will soon materialize as a kitchen garden for my friends' sunny South Bay backyard (pictures will be posted!). As for Grow-City I'm excited for the upcoming two-year anniversary of the little blog that could. To celebrate I have a make-over planned for the site (in progress) along with a new feature focusing on the metrics of food landscapes. As usual, I'm looking forward to blogging on another year of great design & agriculture projects, and hoping to see all sorts of new ideas on how to integrate food lansdcapes into our built environment!
What are you looking forward to in the new year?
