In Pratt's Backyard: Food Justice and Community Organizing

Representatives from the Weeksville Society, East New York Farms, and Brownsville EATS (part of the Active Citizens Project) discussed their food, social justice, and urban agriculture initiatives over a communal meal of locally-grown and locally-distributed food.

The Initiative for Art, Community, and Social Change sponsored this showcase on sustainable urban agriculture and food initiatives in our local communities of Brooklyn with support from the Pratt Center for Sustainable Design Studies (Pratt CSDS).  The event was held on Friday, April 3rd 2009 at Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY.
