Local, sustainable food production is cited as one strategy for addressing urban health and environmental concerns.  Local food has the potential to reduce the energy needed to grow and transport food – but does it actually do so?  In this presentation Dr. Martin will share research exploring the environmental costs and benefits of local, urban agriculture, and share tips regarding how can we make urban gardens -- and our food choices -- more efficient  in their environmental outcomes.
