12th Annual Rooted in Community National Conference

Posted by on May 24, 2010

Food Justice workers!
Think Rooted in Community 2010 in the South!  Encouraging you to start planning your trip, creating proposals, start raising money, etc.  Tis a deeply good summer exchange and inspiration!

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Rooted in Community – we are a  national grassroots network that empowers young people to take leadership in their own communities. We are a diverse movement of youth and adults working together and committed to fostering healthy communities and food justice through urban and rural agriculture, community gardening, food security, and related environmental justice work… and every year we host a five day conference for youth to come together, share their knowledge and skills, and learn about other programs that are working to create a just world.

SEEDS in Durham, North Carolina, along with Wayne Food Initiative, Stone Circles, and Anathoth Community Garden are planning the 12th Annual Rooted in Community National Conference and we hope to see you there!

Wednesday, July 21st-25th, 2010  http://www.seedsnc.org/

We’re excited to share this video clip with you along with the link to RIC.


Important things to know now:

1. The conference will start Wednesday, July 21st and end Sunday, July 25
2. Check our website, http://www.rootedincommunity.org for updates.
3.
