Urban/Rural Struggle for a Sustainable Future
Amanda Babcock Policy Program Organizer for state policy, Land Stewardship Project, will give us a systems-based description of the connections between food access, sustainable farming and resilient, racially just communities.
Farmer Advocate Dan Hinz from the MN Department of Agriculture will provide a boots-on-the-ground report of the struggles Minnesota farmers are facing as we approach a farming crisis like we’ve not seen since the 1980s.
