Food Resilience Plan for Arzaville
Imagine that you are a resident of Arzaville, a community whose characteristics are described below.
You have come together with your neighbors for a special meeting to devise a management plan for helping the community become more resilient and sustainable in terms of its food production by 2050. A community that is resilient is able to recover quickly from events like drought or storms. By increasing its own food production, Arzaville can also reduce its food miles—the distance that imported food must travel. By making its food production more sustainable, Arzaville can help ensure that its residents’ food needs are supplied for generations to come, without placing undue harm on the local environment in the process.
Now it is time to put your thinking cap on and get to work! Your ideas should consist of one or more of the following elements (some suggestions may apply to both categories):
1, Food resiliency measures (e.g., building vertical farms in the city center to ensure that urban residents can have access to fresh, organically grown produce).
2. Food sustainability measures (e.g., phasing out use of organic pesticides in favor of companion planting and other organic methods).
Post your ideas for plan components and also share pros and cons of different proposals AND LABEL.
3. Post at least two separate and entirely original ideas.
4. Post at least six different pros and six different cons (12 in all).
Vote on what you feel are the top three ideas in the list.

Overview:The city of Arzaville is located on an ocean coastline and boasts a Mediterranean climate that is relatively warm and dry year-round. A popular destination for outdoor activities like sailing and surfing, the city has a strong economy with abundant arts and culture opportunities.

Away from the coast, the inland features mountain chains interspersed with desert valleys.
