Event description

Description

Be at the table.

Please join us for lunch and conversation focusing on California Water Wars. We will be discussing drought, agriculture, fish, The Delta Tunnel Project and environmental justice in a thirsty state.

Spend an afternoon in the Central Valley talking about water and it won't take long before the Bay Area is accused of water cluelessness regarding the cost of urban water and the economics of agriculture in California. In many instances, that would be a fair accusation. Public knowledge in the Bay Area regarding California's water crisis beyond draught remains largely misunderstood, though the implications could not be greater for the future of our state and the future of our food.

We've managed to communicate in anecdotes of blame regarding Palm Springs golf courses, Central Valley almonds, Los Angeles swimming pools, suburban lawns, Nestle water, disappearing salmon, pot farms, and failing damns but the one thing that connects them, the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta remains largely misunderstood. 'California's lungs,' as the wise fisherman and farmers I know refer to the Delta as, might be the best place to start as we try to understand equity on our plate and in our communities.

Let's talk about it.

The afternoon will include wine and a four-course, family style lunch over table conversation with experts in water policy and infastructure.

100% of ticket sales will be donated to San Francisco Baykeeper. Nopa and Nopalito restaurants, staff and chefs will be donating their food and service in order to support the conversation and the work of San Francisco Baykeeper. Please consider donating if you are able.
