Growing Food & Justice “Food is Medicine, Water is Life” Conference Oct. 17-20, 2013

October 13th, 2013 by melanie


I will be presenting at the upcoming Growing Food and Justice Initiative for All Conference taking place at the Taos County Economic Development Center in Taos, New Mexico on Sunday, October 20th, 2013 from 9:30-11:30 am.

GFJI’s Mission

The Growing Food and Justice for All Initiative is a new initiative aimed at dismantling racism and empowering low-income and communities of color through sustainable and local agriculture. This comprehensive network views dismantling racism as a core principal which brings together social change agents from diverse sectors working to bring about new, healthy and sustainable food systems and supporting and building multicultural leadership in impoverished communities throughout the world.

The vision for this initiative is to establish a powerful network of individuals, organizations and community based entities all working toward a food secure and just world.
