New Entry Sustainable Farming Project‘s Community Food Systems Conference will address common underlying themes between food security, social justice and sustainable agriculture. The conference will provide space for conversations around promoting, facilitating, and supporting self-reliance; breaking down barriers to racial and economic justice; connecting communities to their food sources; and impacting communities at the local and regional level through sustainable land use, food production including fisheries and distribution. There is an urgent need to come together in the spirit of collaboration, progress and solidarity. Please join to continue building strong leaders and self-reliant communities.
The Community Food Systems Conference will take place December 5 – 7, 2017 at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel. Join their e-list to stay informed about the event.
This conference will address a variety of community food system topics. There are certain cross-cutting issues we believe are fundamental in community food systems and in building a strong, equitable food future. We hope to see these represented across all sessions.
