Farming for Justice is a monthly webinar for farmers, food producers, and food system workers interested in digging into the intersection of food, agriculture, and social justice.
Farming for Justice Webinars are a platform for dialogue, education, and action planning.
Every month, via Zoom webinar, we join featured guests as they speak on topics addressing the intersections of farming and food justice.
Recordings are released following the session if you are unable to join.
Interested in Presenting?
Apply now! We're still filling our 2021 calendar!
Farmers, gardeners, land stewards, food systems workers, food justice activists, and community organizers are invited you to share their story, efforts and initiatives through our Farming for Justice (FFJ) webinars.
When: FFJ meets on the second Wednesday of each month, from 12-1:30pm, although we can vary this slightly if needed to accommodate a presenters' schedule.
This 90 minute session is hosted and facilitated remotely by Groundswell staff via Zoom. While the format always varies to match a presenter's style, often a presenter shares slides or a video for a short while, offers a breakout question or two that attendees discuss in small groups, and then shares more about their own work or engages in a larger group discussion about the topic of the session. This format is flexible.
Compensation: Presenters receive a $135 honorarium to cover 3 hours of preparation time and the 90 minute FFJ session.
FFJ Topics: We're open to your ideas for topics related to farming and justice! We've also received feedback requesting some of these topics: equitable land linking and access, restoration of native plants and seed, and traditional growing practices/methods of Black and Indigenous farmers.
If you or someone you know is interested in presenting a Farming for Justice webinar please reach out! Email Giavanna@groundswellcenter.org to share your topics or ideas and get more information.
Please note: the FFJ platform prioritizes BIPOC and LGTBQ+ voices.
