What will our cities look like in a climate changed future? Friday morning on KBOO, we’ll look at issues of urban sustainability and urban agriculture, with a focus on the basics of food, water and shelter. We’ll at what’s been done in other cities and here in Portland already, and how transforming our cities will not only free us from the grip of fossil fuels, but increases our personal freedom as well.
