The Praxis Project convened 18 BIPOC-led base-building and power-building organizations from across the United States that steward community gardens or urban farms for three virtual learning circles in early 2022. The goal of the Learning Circles was to better understand the functions of these spaces, how they contribute to building community power, to describe a community- centered vision for the future of equitable and just food systems, and how this critical work to build power while feeding our communities can be better supported.
During this webinar we will hear from participants of the Community Gardens and Urban Farms Learning Circle about their experience participating in the learning circle, their hopes, and opportunities for commitment to community gardens and urban farms. This webinar is a complement to the brief, "From Food Justice to Liberation: Building Community Power through Community Gardens & Urban Farms."
