Engaging our Local Food Cycle
LEARN ABOUT AND WORK FOR A LOCAL COMMUNITY FARM
Coordinated by the Food Justice Project of the Community Alliance for Global Justice
Sixth Event of 2010! GroundUP and Creatives4Community
Saturday, November 13, 10am-3pm
Please support our commitment to alternative transportation methods by biking, walking or taking pubic transit to this event!
CAGJ’s Food Justice Project invites our members and others to learn about and build connections with key players in the local food region through monthly visits to farms, community kitchens, and community gardens! The site visits will include hands-on work that is needed by or is appropriate to the sites, opportunities to debrief and reflect at the end of the site visit, and calls to action! Each visit will allow for carpool options and many will also feature a bike route guided by a CAGJ member. Through these visits, CAGJ hopes to facilitate a place for the voices of our local food producers to be heard and their knowledge and skills to be recognized and celebrated.
GroundUP Organics is a project of Creatives4Community (C4C) that works to create living-wage green employment and educational opportunities for low-income youth of color in urban centers. Based in Yesler Terrace, the program teaches local teens to become leaders in sustainable urban agriculture. For more information, please visit the C4C facebook page.
