MONDAY, AUGUST 9, 2021 @ 6 P.M. CST
The Festival Beach Food Forest team will talk about how they, their Community Advisors and the interested public came together from early 2020 through the summer of 2021 to complete upon three aspirations for a grant they received through Urban Forestry:
1) Strengthen community relationships, and honor people and cultures.
2) Generate expansion designs of the edible urban park, as well as a campus vision, that is fed by community input.
3) Educate and inspire others to transform our urban public land or “commons” into productive permaculture based food forests.
Marika Alvarado from Of The Earth Institute Of Indigenous Cultures and Teachings will also join the FBFF team along with Karen Luzius who will discuss the edible and medicinal plantings currently at the food forest. They will also share what is yet to come and how we can get involved!
