Farming for Justice is a quarterly webinar for farmers, land stewards, food producers, and activists 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.
Once a quarter, 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.
