Our Threatened Gardens series continues! This time with our friends at the Philadelphia Food Policy Advisory Council (FPAC), as we set our sights on City Council elections and building our strategic Land Bank plan. We want this city's food systems and policies to work for us, so come join us for an informative evening of dialogue, planning, and imaging futures.
Join us on October 25th, as we demand community control for our gardens as sources of food, agency and care. Gathering around City Hall, we are taking to the streets with our demands, to protect our gardens facing the threat of sheriff sale and outside development. People power will make this movement dance!
