What do the city of Detroit and West Oakland have in common?
Both are communities in crisis yet poised on the crux of positive change.
Our special guest speaker Wanda Stewart is Executive Director of People’s Grocery, a dynamic community organization working to improve the health and local economy of West Oakland by investing in the local food system. She’ll tell us how People’s Grocery is working toward their goals and how we can help. You’ll learn about their unique Mobile Market, the Grub Box (CSA), Wholesale Hookup and the People’s Community Market.
Urban Roots is an inspiring film about the emergence of urban farming in Detroit. Like West Oakland, Detroit has high rates of unemployment, poverty, crime and pollution, lack of grocery stores with fresh food and high rates of liquor stores, diabetes and heart disease. But Detroit urban farmers are building a new and powerful urban economy that addresses these challenges while growing healthy food and strong communities.
Please join us for healthy snacks and conversation at 6:30. The program will begin at 7:00,
