Public Orchard: Darrin Nordahl Talk

Join us for a talk with author and activist Darrin Nordahl who will discuss the problems of food safety and security, obesity and poor nutrition– and how some US cities are encouraging the creation of edible landscapes on public or unutilized land to address these pressing issues.

He is the city designer at the Davenport Design Center, formed in 2003 as a division of the Community & Economic Development Department of the City of Davenport, Iowa.  He has taught planning at the University of California at Berkeley.
