Rooted in Community: Building Local Food Self-Reliance

Posted by on June 18, 2007

Where: Philadelphia, PA
When: July 18 to July 22, 2007
Local Host: Urban Nutrition Initiative

Rooted in Community (RIC) is a national grassroots network that empowers young people to take leadership roles in their communities. RIC began as a national conference for groups engaged in community gardening, urban agriculture and community food security, convened by the American Community Gardening Association, The Food Project and Literacy for Environmental Justice. But now RIC has evolved into its own network of groups, focused on positive change, through food and food systems.
