Breaking Down and Digesting Food Justice and its Place in a Equitable Urban Landscape
Food security, food justice and food sovereignty. Connecting them and helping participants understand how each work and how they are very different through some real life examples and experiences.
Examples of Equitable Food Access in an Urban Landscape
In this section, Cheyenne will explore different types of urban farms, Indigenous led food systems, composting projects and community based projects that center those who are most affected in the food system. She will break down how they work and provide examples from each project that can be utilized in your own practice.
Detailed, actionable steps that participants can take within the existing food system. Ex: actionable items for a neighbour who would like to see more equitable access in their local community garden etc.
The related discussion session will be at the same time, two weeks after Cheyenne's presentation.
