The growing of food is an act of resiliency and sustainability, often led by People of Color, specifically Black, Indigenous, and Latinx communities. We acknowledge that during this current health pandemic, issues of food access, sovereignty, justice and inequity have been exacerbated.
The Urban Farmer-to-Farmer Summit has been created in solidarity to provide more structure for the NYC Urban Farm Community to come together. In community and collaboration, we aim to share resources, reflect on misadventures, strengthen connections, and highlight new opportunities to rise to the challenges of our times. Our hope is to make this an annual farmer-driven event with a low barrier to participate.
