Digging Deeper: Building Blocks for Sustainable Design [1] is an exciting competition that partners designers with the City of San Francisco [2] to tackle real urban problems and find viable solutions. Launched in late September, the competition challenges designers from every field to design a physical or social urban agriculture product/system. If you have ideas for how to design and implement real-life solutions that provide local food to urban areas, act quickly [3] because the deadline is January 31st!

The Digging Deeper [1] competition is split into two parts and welcomes designers of all kinds. Part 1: Inspiration and Approach [4] is a call to action for those familiar with product, graphic, and interaction design, architecture, planning and entrepreneurs. Part 2: The Competition Problem Statement [5] is outlined by Astrid Haryati, the Greening Director for the Office of the Mayor of San Francisco, who walks through the current problems and design opportunities with locally grown food.
