How Much Water is in Your Hamburger?
Irrigation is the BIGGEST use of water in our country. In California, the Department of Water Resources estimates it accounts for 61% of our freshwater withdrawls. Globally, 70% of freshwater is used to grow food. Growing food is very important- we all need to eat! Can we use less water to produce food though? This month we will learn about how food grows with water and what we can do to use less water in our diets.
After that, check out the More Good Stuff section below to get details about our upcoming Open House!
