Abstract

The world’s rapidly growing population has placed food security for our future generations under extreme duress. Initiatives in urban agriculture that maximize the use of minimal spaces and resources have inspired student-led initiatives to find solutions to our impending food shortages. Student researchers, Ian Lin and Gabriel Trujillo, are pioneering two vital aspects of urban agriculture. Gabriel Trujillo is spearheading a project in vermiculture, accelerated composting with worms, in the hopes to bolster productivity in the campus garden. Ian Lin heads development in growing edible fungi in indoor environments.
