CURE supports local sustainable Ag as part of high school project and curriculum.The Riverside Unified School District is developing the iconic property at Victoria and Central into a sports field. CURE retained a prominent architect to develop a design that includes 1.4 acres of sustainable agriculture (in addition to the new field) allowing students to learn about food systems, grow crops, and potentially net well over $100,000 annually in sales for programs. (Reference Urban Farmer) We feel this is a win-win for the community. See CURE’s position on the Poly Property HERE.
