Date of project: 2006
SAGE prepared a Sustainable Food and Agriculture Systems Assessment for Festival Ranch, a master-planned community near Phoenix, Arizona. The development considered ‘food’ as a major element that impacts sense of place, natural resource stewardship, education, environmental footprint, and public health and wellness.
SAGE produced a 75-page assessment outlining strategies that planned communities can use to establish healthy food systems. It also included guiding principles and research data that form the basis for an implementation plan.
