With the effects of climate change growing more severe by the day, social unrest more common, and the economy more volatile, the only thing it seems we can be certain of is change. These collective changes in climate, demographics, and economics will result in inevitable and substantial negative impacts on environmental systems, food security, equity, and quality of life if left unmitigated.  Our panel will discuss how we, as landscape architects, planners and designers, can and should partner with allied professions, developers, and municipalities to create more resilient communities and landscapes to, not only survive these changes, but to thrive in these conditions through urban agriculture master planning techniques. Evidenced by research and work in Oklahoma City, San Antonio, and North Texas, which emphasize ecosystem restoration and urban agriculture strategies such as public agriculture (food forests, community gardens, edible landscaping), urban agriculture (soil-based and hydroponics), and school agriculture programs – we will explore how a more resilient society is critical for climate action success. We will also introduce our team's work on the Dallas Urban Agriculture and Food Security Plan.
