From Food Deserts to Food Forests (online)
March 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
High inflation rates nationwide have made it more difficult for many people to put food on the table. This impact is even greater in areas of our city where stores selling fresh fruits and vegetables are few and far between. Many community organizations throughout Philly are stepping up to transform city green spaces into urban farms and food forests, growing fresh produce, teaching gardening skills, providing nutrition education, and making neighborhoods more sustainable and resilient in the face of economic instability. We talk to community leaders who are harnessing the power of nature to strengthen their neighborhoods: Jasmine Thompson of Philly Forests, Jiana Murdic of Get Fresh Daily, and Kim Jordan of Philly Orchard Project.
