Issues in contemporary agriculture

In Albany, in the aftermath of the illegal occupation of the Gill Tract, members of the Albany City Council have been in discussion with Dean Keith Gilless of the UC Berkeley College of Natural Resources on the future of the Gill Tract and the sort of community programs that could be available there.

California Agriculture journal, especially the January-March 2013 issue, provides the council with an excellent overview of contemporary issues in agriculture and of the variety of educational, environmental and nutritional programs sponsored by ANR.

Correction: Location of Pigeon Point lighthouse

Great job on the January-March 2013 California Agriculture issue! We are interested in UC agricultural and natural resources research because our company specializes in alternative urban farming and gardening, and the Food and Solar Energy Co-Production Project.

On page 62, “Nitrogen fertilizer use in California: Assessing the data, trends and a way forward,” the picture of Pigeon Point Lighthouse with cole crop plants in the foreground was identified as located in Santa Cruz County. Pigeon Point Lighthouse is in San Mateo County.

Editor's note: Thank you for the correction; we entered it in the E-Edition, and the print version in this issue.

California Agriculture regrets the error.

Production and access to nutritious food

Thank you for the coverage in the January-March 2013 edition. At UCCE Marin, we are providing steering committee leadership for the Marin Food Policy Council. This is a broad stakeholder body focusing on the development and implementation of policy to increase production of, and access to, healthy nutritious food.

Everything in the issue is relevant to our current and upcoming discussions.
