It really great to see our northern pathfinder cities sharing a platform to talk about their experiences and challenges in building real food and farming systems.
This virtual workshop will use case studies and presentations to:
- Explain how urban farms can contribute to our food supply and food sovereignty aims, and explore the extent to which urban/peri-urban farms could feed people in cities;
- Explore how urban farms could attract people to the real farming movement;
- Discuss urban farming’s vital role in the broader movement for a just and fair real farming and food system;
- Explore how urban farms can help build links between people living in cities and the rural farms that feed us.
This is part of the Northern Real Farming Conference 2021.
