UPDATE: Were you at this workshop? Looking for the discussion question slides? We have posted them here.

Join us at the Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont (NOFA-VT) Winter Conference for the workshop Black/Land: New Questions.

Based on interviews with urban gardeners and rural farmers, community activists and artists, and ordinary people who tell extraordinary stories,Black/Land: New Questions begins with a slide show that describes the unique perspectives of African-American, Caribbean and African immigrants’ relationships to land and place.

In the second part of the workshop, Mistinguette Smith, Hannah Sultanand John Elder will guide small group dialogues about these relationships to land and place, and what we can learn to supportour efforts to build racially just and resilient urban/rural connections in an increasingly multicultural Vermont.
