Breakout Session: Busting Food Sustainability Myths – Climate Adaptation & Mitigation Opportunities in Fruit & Vegetable Supply Chains

Indianapolis, Indiana, USA

Sustainable Agriculture Summit


The vast majority of Americans now live their lives almost entirely detached from agriculture and the realities of food production, rendering them increasingly susceptible to urban folklore and myths about so-called "sustainable food." Fruits and vegetables are an important class of foods for which an entire mythology around sustainability has developed. This breakout session at the Sustainable Agriculture Summit will bust many of those myths through a creative presentation of the findings generated by a highly interdisciplinary research team, which is now two years into a four-year effort to explore climate adaptation and mitigation opportunities in U.S. fruit and vegetable supply chains.
