Karen Washington, a Farmer,  shares how she found her place of belonging, “…as I placed my hands in the soil, I felt a connection, a calling.” As a co-owner of Rise and Root Farm, just north of New York City, they are dedicated to food and farming as tools to mitigate many of the social and economic inequities that we face.  With intention, honest and loving communication, and engaging both rural and urban communities, these farmers/food justice activists  have dedicated their lives to increasing the number of people growing and eating good food. All key to building equity and a strong local food economy.

Program followed by snacks and coffee/tea — please feel free to bring something to share!
