The Agricultural Sustainability Institute at UC Davis is a group of researchers, educators, and agricultural extension professionals working to answer big questions on how to make agriculture and food systems more sustainable - in California and beyond.
We work to ensure that California residents have access to healthy food and communities throughout California thrive.
Through partnerships with farmers, interdisciplinary research, and innovative communication, we find science-based solutions to today's biggest environmental and resource use challenges.
We are training the next generation of agricultural leaders through classroom learning and hands-on experience.
Israel Herrera, principal superintendent of the Russell Ranch Sustainable Agriculture Facility at UC Davis, has been presented with a 2016 Award of Distinction by the College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences. The award is the highest recognition presented by the College.
As part of the UC Davis Book Project events, we're teaming up with students on campus to learn about student-led initiatives to improve food security on campus, and discuss the challenges ahead.
