Breaking Through Concrete: Building an Urban Farm Revival

People have always grown food in urban spaces — on windowsills and sidewalks, and in backyards and neighborhood parks — but today, urban farmers are leading an environmental and social movement that transforms our national food system. Join us on Tuesday, June 12 from 7-9pm at The Ecology Center for a visual presentation and discussion on food. Authors David and Michael Hanson will guide an international scenic tour, illustrating how people connect to food via images they’ve collected from years of travel and documentary assignments: Fiji’s remote island fishing villages, Bolivia’s high-desert quinoa farmers, America’s Deep South hunters and gatherers, and more. Then they’ll discuss what they discovered during their two-month cross-country tour of America’s urban farms. Nothing says more about us than our food – You are what you eat! Copies of their book, Breaking Through Concrete, will be available to purchase. Click here for more information.
