    April 29th, 5:00pm, Lucas Hall, Forbes 126

    Ecopia Farms is a local farm researching ultra-low water use methods for agricultural production.

This reduces the use of precious water by over 97% compared to conventional farm practices. Dan Perez will discuss their research and explain how ultra-low water methods could be one of the answers to decreasing water usage in California and worldwide.
