Widening the Welcome: The Future of Agriculture for Communities of Color

Saturday, November 4, 2017 - 9:00am to 12:00pm
Location: 
Hartford, CT

The face of farming is radically changing. How can we encourage more African American/Black, Latinx and API/APA communities to be in the vanguard if that changes in New England? Join us Saturday, November 4, 2017 for a rare opportunity to raise the voices of global majority actors with a vested interest in agrarian-based ventures statewide and regionally. This open, pre-registration required event also serves an introduction to the upcoming Where Women Gather: A Celebration of Women in Farming hosted by Hidden Acres Farm, Inc. in New Haven, CT in late June 2018: www.wherewomengather.eventbrite.com.

The 224 Ecospace: 224 Farmington Avenue

*The event page will be updated periodically as speakers and agenda items are confirmed*
