Farming for Justice

Farming for Justice is a monthly meeting for farmers, food producers, and food system workers interested in digging into the intersection of food, agriculture, and social justice.

What role do we see ourselves playing in racial/economic justice work? What are the barriers we face and how can we support each other to step into further action? Through dialogue, education, and action planning, we’ll begin to explore the answers.
