We had another great year celebrating and educating about Urban Agriculture. This year we were at School 33 Audubon - thanks so much for the warm welcome and the space to gather together!
More than 100 local gardeners, farmers, and general agriculture enthusiasts came together for a day filled with workshops on everything from growing herbs to raising ducks and chickens in the city. We were also so lucky to have folk from the Allies of the Alianza Agrícola, as well as Tonya Noel from the Flower City Noire Collective speaking on our lunchtime panel, The Intersections of Food, Race, and Justice. Thank you so much for your brave, inspiring words that remind us all we can do better.
A huge thank you to all of our presenters, as well as the Rochester City School District, City of Rochester, NY - Mayor's Office, and New City Cafe. We can't wait to see you all next year! ... See more
