Food Security: Make it Local

(Event Sponsor: Albany Farm Alliance and Occupy the Farm)

March 6, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

| Free

Food Security 8.5x11Come to a participatory forum to continue community dialogue and people-powered research around the future of the Gill Tract Farm.  We want the forum to serve as the next step in a collaboration with the City of Albany, UC, all interested organizations and agencies, and the broader community around the use of this precious regional resource in our town.

Community education and engagement are strategies the Albany Farm Alliance is employing to ensure the establishment of an agro-ecological education center and demonstration urban farm on the Gill Tract, in perpetuity. Areas of exploration at the forum will include farming, education, research, access and management, & race, class, and privilege. Participants will be able to identify other areas for exploration, as well.
