San Diego 1 in 10 Coalition

Below are some basics which will remain here, but the best way to get current info and be involved is visit SDFoodPolicy.org and join the email list as well.

Vision: One in Ten households will grow or purchase food within 100 miles of San Diego.

Mission: "1 in 10" promotes policies leading to local food production and long term food shed sustainability in San Diego through advocacy, education, and organizing.

To this end, we propose that the following ten policies be amended or adopted:
1. Community Garden Permit Process -- City of SD policy updated in July 2011!
2. Prioritizing Water for Food Production
3. Backyard Growers at Farmers Market
4. Graywater Systems/Reclamation Systems
5. Green Carts
6. Home and Community Composting
7. City Chicken Permitting
8. Urban Beekeeping
9. Food stamp benefits (EBT) acceptance at farmers' markets
10. Food Waste Composting & Green Waste Recycling Program
We propose that residents and government officials work together to support long term food shed sustainability. In [documents we have created], we describe existing policies and propose practical solutions that would support local food production and long term food shed sustainability. The policies are prioritized based on magnitude of impact on San Diego residents in descending order.
