dip n' dig

up top acres and little sesame

over half of the world's population lives in cities, demand for local food is growing, and the average age of a farmer in the usa is 58. in this reality, what is the future of food in the urban landscape?

hosted on up top acre's rooftop farm overlooking the nats stadium, we enjoyed hummus, rooftop-grown veggies, beverages and good vibes.

our discussion explored how dc's foodscape is changing from producer to consumer. we dug into how underutilized space is being leveraged to meet a new wave of eaters demanding healthy food in a "fast food" format and food's broader sociocultural effects in our city and beyond
