Public Matters will be letting people know where they can get their 5 at a special event today at City Hall, where Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will announce the winner of a contest focused on design solutions for growing and delivering local, fresh food to urban residents.

The problem of finding healthy food in an urban environment is one that Public Matters is working to solve.

The event, sponsored by GOOD Magazine, The Architect’s Newspaper and edible LA entertainment, is celebrating 30 years of farmers’ markets in L.A.

Other presenters include:

Authors Erik Knutzen & Kelly Coyne, Homegrown Revolution, will demonstrate their self-irrigating pots.

Tara of Silver Lake Farms and Urban Farming Advocates will talk about how legislation can change urban agriculture policy in L.A.
