12.5.17 // 8:30am to 12.7.17 // 4:30pm
New Entry Sustainable Farming Project's Community Food Systems Conference will address common underlying themes between food security, social justice and sustainable agriculture including obstacles in urban and rural environments and fostering community empowerment to create and sustain resilient local food systems. This conference is possible thanks to funding from the Community Food Projects grant program of USDA's National Institute of Food and Agriculture. We will provide space for conversations around promoting, facilitating, and supporting self-reliance; breaking down barriers to racial justice; connecting communities to their food sources; and impacting communities at the local and regional level through sustainable food production.
