NOW accepting photography (SUBMIT) submissions. Deadline September 1.
Our inaugural project was a photography contest with images that capture agri-Culture here in San Diego. You can view them online here.
We're following up last year's success with our 2nd Annual Photography Contest (SUBMIT), where we want your photos that best exemplify the experience of agri-Culture throughout the seasons here in San Diego and the unusual and remarkable bounty it provides.
Among other prizes, selections from these contests will be featured in the 2012 San Diego Roots Kitchen Garden Almanac, due Fall 2011.
The goal of these photo contests is to create a visual foodscape of San Diego County. We what you to show us how you relate to food: the who, what, when, where, how and why of agri-CULTURE in San Diego.
Stay tuned for more agri-Culture to come. AND be sure to follow our progress as we develop Wild Willow Farm and Education Center just outside of San Diego.
What is the Art of Agriculture?
This fundraising contest from San Diego Roots is meant to heighten awareness of the links between agriculture and art, as the growing, cooking, and eating of food is as much an artistic endeavor as scientific.
But the art doesn't end there: just as food gives creative energy for our bodies, agriculture inspires and gives energy to our creative minds, allowing us to express ourselves in myriad ways.
Through projects, contests, and events we hope to allow you to show us the Art of Agriculture as you see it.
