"Gardens, scholars say, are the first sign of commitment to a community. When people plant corn they are saying, let's stay here. And by their connection to the land, they are connected to one another." - Anne Raver
Later this month, I'll be giving a brief transitional talk about my research on food justice at the Monadnock Farm & Community Coalition's spring summit, “Improving Local Food Access to Moderate and Low Income Communities” - hosted by the MFCC's Education Working Group. In June, I'll be co-presenting a concurrent session entitled "Tending Gardens, Raising Resilience: A recipe for community, served three ways" at the UVM Food Systems Summit. Hope to see you at one or both of these events.
