Video: Public forum on community-academic collaboration at The New School -2/27/14

In February 2014, we convened a public forum with urban agriculture activists and food system scholars from several academic institutions in New York City. We presented preliminary findings from the Beyond the Kale research, followed by a panel discussion about how community-based activists and scholars might best work together to advance social justice through urban agriculture. The event took place at The New School. View the video below or click here to watch the video. Featured panelists are listed below:
