Brooklyn Food Conference – May 12, 2012

The Flatbush Farm Share will be recruiting and representing our farmers Chris and Katie at Brooklyn Food Coalition‘s FREE Brooklyn Food Conference on Saturday, May 12, 9am-6pm at Brooklyn Tech HS in Ft. Greene (Dekalb Ave and Ft. Greene Pl).

Share your experiences with other urban gardeners and farmers, and help others learn about what we are doing on the ground. Learn about how people are changing the way we eat, how we can get healthy food into all our neighborhoods, and how to create a food system that is sustainable and creates good jobs.

There’ll be over 175 workshops, cooking demos, and a giant expo. Families can spend the day learning about food together in the Kids and Families Area and teens can enjoy a Youth Summit created by and for teens. Many of the workshops will focus on urban agriculture, how to improve school food, and building a sustainable and just food system.

Bring yourself, your family, and your friends. Purchase lunch online or on-site.  Over 5000 people are expected to attend, and there will be something for everyone. Learn from your friends and neighbors, as we gather together to change the food system for a healthy people and planet.

Register today and order your delicious, sustainable lunch for the conference day right now.
