Sowing Seeds DC Conference
Sowing Seeds Here and Now:
A Chesapeake Urban Farming Summit
The urban farming movement is growing every day. Check out this amazing upcoming event!
(Don't forget that you can click on the image of the flyer to zoom in.)
Engaged Community Offshoots (ECO) is partnering with organizations all over the Chesapeake region to discuss the growth of local food. If you're interested in developing new economies, personal health, environmental health, food security, and community structures, community gardening is a great development.
Will Allen's organization, Growing Power, is one of the main program at the forefront of the urban farming movement. For a Baltimore example, you don't need to look further than the CivicWorks Real Food Farm at Clifton High School.
I will keep you all updated as plans for this conference develop. This is going to be a fabulous networking opportunity for different organizations all over the region, and I can't wait to see the energy that Will Allen is going to bring to urban farming in our area.
Save the date for Friday, June 18th!
