Title: Freeing Land for Food: Urban Greening Projects and Gentrification
START DATE: Saturday September 28
TIME: 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Location Details:
Phat Beets North Oakland Farmers' Market
942 Stanford Ave., Oakland, CA, 94608
Event Type: Panel Discussion
Why are urban soils so toxic in communities that have the least access to healthy foods? Is a community garden in your neighborhood always good for the community and does it meet the needs of the community? How does gentrification impact people’s ability to access healthy food? Come hear perspectives from the food justice movement in this panel discussion and primer on urban farming.

This event is part of the Ecology Centers "Soil in the City Series" as well as part of the "Food N' Justice Series," taking place at the Saturday Phat Beets Farmers Market in North Oakland.

Phat Beets Produce aims to create a healthier, more equitable food system in North Oakland through providing affordable access to fresh produce, facilitating youth leadership in health and nutrition education, and connecting small farmers to urban communities via the creation of farm stands, farmers’ markets, and urban youth market gardens.
