GrowRIVERSIDE is a multi-stakeholder initiative to cultivate food and agricultural activities across the Inland Southern California region. GrowRIVERSIDE will equip the public with tools and knowledge to create a strong marketplace for local food systems, generate opportunities for community and economic development, advance public policy related to food and agriculture, and provide a venue for stakeholders to network.

This year’s conference features Curtis Stone.  Stone is a farmer, author, speaker and consultant with expertise in high value, quick-growing annual specialty crops for direct consumer market streams. His book, The Urban Farmer, demonstrates organic intensive techniques with a focus on business and growing systems to streamline labor and production. Stone offers a new way to think about urban farming where quality of life and profitability coexist. Curtis’ farm, Green City Acres located in Kelowna, BC, Canada, generates $100,000 per year on one-quarter acre utilizing a mix of specialty crops and intercropping strategies; Green City Acres is internationally recognized as a flagship urban agricultural model demonstrating profitability and productivity.
