WalksSacramento project manager Kirin Kumar leads a nonprofit effort to encourage walking. One of the tactics he recommends is “meeting walks”. Rather than indoor conferences, these walks are conducted on foot. Benefits of meeting walks include healthy exercise which is more difficult to obtain in an indoor office. Unlike the conference room, destinations such as farmer’s markets and picnic areas can be part of the walking strategy. Pictured in front of his Q Street office, Kirin stands at the embarkation of one of his favorite destination strolls: the seasonal farmer’s mart at Cesar Chavez Plaza on I Street.
