Freeing Land for Food: Urban Greening Projects and Gentrification

This event has passed.

Why are urban soils so toxic in communities that have the least access to healthy foods? Is a community garden in your neighborhood always good for the community and does it meet the needs of the community? How does gentrification impact people’s ability to access healthy food? Come hear perspectives from the food justice movement in this panel discussion and primer on urban farming.

Panelists include: Doria Robinson (Urban Tilth), Ashoka Finley (Occupy the Farm), Gopal Dayaneni (Movement Generation), member of Phat Beets Produce.
