On February 9th, the Climate Science Alliance was excited to join our partners at Coastal Roots Farm for their annual Tu B’Shvat Food Forest Festival!

Tu B’Shvat is the Jewish New Year of Trees and is often celebrated by planting trees, eating fruits, and honoring our connection to and dependence on the world around us. This year’s theme was “Trees of Change” and focused on our responsibility as individuals to protect the environment. At the Festival, attendees enjoyed a variety of activities, tours, access to Coastal Root’s new STEM science lab, educational workshops including Climate Kids activities, live music, arts & crafts, and more!

In alignment with our Climate Kids Program and new Resilient Roots project, the Alliance provided a workshop for attendees entitled, “Understanding Climate Impacts on the Food System.” This interactive workshop helped community members better understand the impacts of climate change in our region and what this will mean for our critical food system. Thanks to our partners at SDG&E and the generous support of the Environmental Champions program we are able to share these new resources with the community.

Thanks to the Coastal Roots Farm team for having us and for the great work you do in our community.
