John Jeffries and The Terrace Foundation
Marti introduced our speaker, John Jeffries, Founder of The Terrace Foundation and Executive Director of the Pilgrim Terrace Co-Op Homes.
John introduced the Pilgrim Terrace located at 649 Pilgrim Terrace Dr. in Santa Barbara. This is senior home facility that provides free and nutritious meals to the residents.  John also talked briefly about The Terrace Foundation, formed with HUD’s background in order to be able to take care of senior citizens in the community.  John discussed the deficiencies we have in our food and therefore our nutrition is diminishing.  John talked about the food insecurity and that this is an economic and social condition.  He said that Santa Barbara is 47th in California of the 58 counties in food insecurity.  John and his team are providing lessons in the community in growing with the use of hydroponic towers.  This type of urban farm is sustainable as it provides water conservation and space conservation.  Hydroponic towers take less space, 44 plants in just 1tower. One tower can feed up to 160 people.  It grows 30% more produce and it is 3 times faster.  It harvests every 5-8 weeks and it requires 70-90% less water.  It does use supplements for nutrition.  John emphasized the importance of urban farming as our water and food supply is diminishing and our older population is increasing significantly every year.
