We are thrilled that Dean Jackson of Hilltop Urban Gardens (HUG) will be this year’s keynote. HUG has been building food sovereignty in Tacoma since 2010 through a neighborhood based food system. They are creating an exciting and unique new model in urban agriculture through a network of Urban Farms on the Hilltop. As a trans-identified food activist, Dean Jackson will share how their identity influences and shapes HUG’s food justice work for racial and economic justice.
