2012 Food Justice Series Information:
In partnership the Accokeek Foundation, Rural Coalition, and Southern Maryland Agricultural Development Commission are honored to present the 2012 Food Justice Series. This is a four part series bringing together farmers, policy advocates, community leaders, faith and government based initiatives focusing on building local, just, and sustainable food systems. Topics include a celebration of the legacy of Cesar Chavez, farmworker justice, food access in Southern Maryland, young and beginning farmers, as well as a look at our ancestral past farming in this region and looking toward the future of farming. This is a wonderful time to come together as a community in solidarity to cultivate insight and conversation about the pressing matters of food justice and how we can work together to transform our food system.
These events are free and open to all. For complete descriptions, including registration, please visit our calendar of events at www.accokeek.org
