From the Ground up: Planting seeds for our sustainable future
Ban Righ Centre
32 Bader Lane
Wednesday October 19, noon - 1 pm
Speaker: Susan Belyea, Coordinator of Lovin’ Spoonful
We are currently witnessing a groundswell of activity around sustainable urban living throughout the world. Central to this is urban agriculture in all its forms from community gardens to urban greenhouses and markets; from backyard hens to urban bees. In this talk we will explore how we can invite nature back into human environments and make human spaces a part of nature. What is our vision? What policies, programs and initiatives can we imagine to support this vision? What can we learn from other urban communities?
