New “Future of Food” seminar series open to CALS community, public

The Wisconsin Institute for Sustainable Agriculture is putting on a new seminar series this spring semester called A Growing Dilemma: The Future of Food. While students are encouraged to take it as a one-credit class, members of the UW-Madison community and general public are welcome to attend all of the talks, which will cover key opportunities and challenges in our agriculture and food systems, including local sourcing, food justice, food waste and more.

The series, which will be held on Tuesday evenings from 5:45 – 6:45 p.m. in 1520 Microbial Sciences Building, kicks off next week with a talk by CALS agronomist Randy Jackson titled “Can we have our cake and eat it too? Bioenergy crops vs. food production.” Click here for the full seminar schedule.
