2022 Urban Hike-a-Thon for Food Justice

 Registration is closed for this event

SAT May 21, 10am - 2pm

Join us for a fun urban hike through Beacon Hill to learn more about food justice organizing. It's a fundraiser but ALL are welcome regardless of ability to fundraise or donate. Bike/walk/roll or drive to points on the route!


Walk, bike, run, or wheel to key locations in the local food justice movement on Beacon Hill, including Beacon Food Forest, Nurturing Roots and The Station coffee shop. We’ll meet with members of these organizations to hear about their work, and will wrap-up with a garden-planting party at the CAGJ office!

Thanks for registering!
