Food Access Programming and Urban Empowerment
Nick (Community Foodworks) and Mary Alice (Dreaming Out Loud) will share the work they do at local non-profit organizations that operate urban farmers markets and increase access to fresh, locally grown food. The evening will take a larger focus on the concepts of food justice and food sovereignty and include a discussion of how farmers markets operate and serve as platforms for community organizing.
As an installment of our 2017 Sustainable Agriculture Tuesdays series, this workshop is open to the UMD community and free to attend.
Sustainable Agriculture Tuesdays are part of the campus-wide Sustainable Tuesdays lecture series co-sponsored by the Institute of Applied Agriculture, the School of Architecture(link is external), and the UMD Office of Sustainability(link is external).
