Point Reyes National Seashore is one of the few national parks in the country that’s zoned for both agriculture and wilderness.

Your Call: What if we ate as if water mattered?

Mar 19, 2015

On the March 19th edition of Your Call, we’ll continue our weeklong series on California’s water crisis by discussing the water footprint of food. Agriculture accounts for 80 percent of water use in the state. It takes 28 gallons of water to produce a 12-oz beer; 1,800 gallons to produce a pound of beef; and 1,900 gallons to produce a pound of almonds. Is there such a thing as a drought-friendly diet? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
