CAGJ is proud to announce 2013′s Urban Hike-a-thon on Beacon Hill! This year’s Hike-a-thon will be a guided exploration of Beacon Hill’s social justice and food justice landscape, highlighting the historical and ongoing resistance of folks on the Hill, reclamation of land to grow food on, people of color-owned food businesses, the Beacon Hill Food Forest, all with a critical eye on the gentrification of the Hill.
Start a Team! – Want to hit the trail with a friend, partner, comrade, buddy, family, group, or more? Start your own team, and make a bigger impact for food justice. You and others on your team will each pledge to raise $50, getting us leaps and bounds closer to our fundraising goal and embarking on the urban hike with your team.
Individuals – Solo hikers pledge to raise $50 to participate in the event and do the hike on June 15. Reach out to your community—every $10, $15, $20 goes to support great work!
Contact [email protected] to find out more about being a team leader and be a part of the Hike-a-thon. Can’t participate on April 28 or want to help in another way? Volunteers are still needed between now and the event to help organize. Email us!
This event will help us distribute our book “Our Food, Our Right”. Last year, you helped us print it; this year, help us get it into every library and independent bookstore in the country! For more information on the book, click here.
