Three free workshops in February through South Side Free Skool
and Experimental Community Education of the TC (EXCO)
Are you interested in building more resilient, sustainable and just communities? Over three Sunday workshops, FOOD FEBRUARY will merge the theory and practice of food justice. Together, we’ll grow the conversation by learning from people already getting their hands dirty in the Twin Cities. No matter if you have little experience or a lot, come to connect with others, share knowledge, and nurture community sustainability.
Each workshop will build off the others, but can also be attended individually. All run from 12-2pm at the Minnehaha Free Space.
February 5 – WINTER GARDENING SKILLS
Learn about winter gardening, including how to grow small herbs and microgreens and how to sprout at home. This workshop will give practical tips for building sustainability at home.
February 12 – FOOD JUSTICE THEORY
This second workshop will transition from self-sustainability to the systems that affect access to food. Join local food justice activists to converse about why our communities often lack culturally appropriate, affordable and nutritious food with which to sustain ourselves.
February 19 – FOOD JUSTICE IN ACTION!
Come to this final workshop to explore what’s being done locally to put food justice theory and practice to work for solidarity, not just charity. Bradi Baker from Project Sweetie Pie, an urban gardening program for North Minneapolis youth, will share her experiences teaching about growing our own food and reconnecting with the land in a culturally appropriate way.
