Food Security Living Lab

We’re excited to introduce the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar Food Security Living Lab as part of a larger Installation Resilience strategy! The Food Security Living Lab takes a holistic and interconnected ecosystem approach to encompass other aspects of installation resilience, such as energy and water resilience, soil health, supply independence, as well as human impacts.
 
Experimental in its approach, the Food Security Living Lab seeks to identify agricultural technologies and adopt best practices to support an "islanded" installation in response

to threats such as climate events, and to support forward

deployed Marines and Sailors in the form of

"expeditionary agriculture." The Food Security Living Lab

is an agile research and development endeavor aboard

the air station in partnership with industry, academic,

and community leaders in sustainable agriculture,

agricultural technology, water security and soil health.
 


The initial lines of effort for the Food Security Living Lab are: Expeditionary Agriculture (agile and movable production agriculture); Natural Resource Resilience and Management (water and energy consumption); and Organic and Food Waste Management (in compliance with California Senate Bill 1383).
