Strawberry & Justice Festival Takes Place at CASFS Farm on May 5

This year the Center for Agroecology & Sustainable Food Systems (CASFS), UCSC’s Food Systems Working Group, and University Café are hosting a free, campus-oriented event on the theme of strawberries and social justice.

The event will take place at the CASFS farm on Thursday, May 5 from 4 pm to 7 pm.

The festival includes live music, fresh organic berry tasting, a social justice self-guided tour, an art and mural expression zone on justice and agriculture, and more. This year we’re also partnering with the University Café group to host an interactive community discussion on furthering social justice in our individual actions and organizational/structural systems. 

Though this year’s program is focused on UCSC students, staff, faculty, and their families, we also encourage Friends of the Farm & Garden members and other community affiliates of CASFS to attend this free event, which is supported by UCSC’s Measure 43 funding.
