Farmers, stewards of the land
Feeding the world
This work was conceived and presented by the California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, California, United States of America.
The symbiotic relationship between humans and nature could not be sustained without respectful stewardship of land. Generations of farmers have been stewards of the environment, people who have tilled and protected the land for centuries.
California is the largest food producing region within the United States of America. California Farmers are … “People who Feed the World”. Diverse climates throughout California makes it possible to produce a huge abundance of crops… olives, grapes, rice, wheat, lettuce, an array of fruits and nuts… and nearly every vegetable imaginable.
This exhibit reflects knowledge and traditions that have been passed down among generations.
California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo is the leading agricultural university in California for providing hands on Learn-by-Doing experiences that train Agricultural Leaders. The teaching of practical farming methods that harmonize with nature and assure the sustainability of our land and food production is a cornerstone to the future world.
The San Luis Obispo County is also famous for its wineries, featuring Zinfandels, Pinot Noir, Chardonnays and Rhône Blends… and for its castle: the Hearts Castle, a 165-room estate built by William Randolph Hearst en 1919.
