Teen Tuesday –  Exploring Food Security

What is food security, and how is it connected to sustainability and social justice? Join us for a conversation with educators and a teenage entrepreneur from urban gardening organization City Blossoms, plus Dr. Bathsheba F. Bryant-Tarpeh, who studies food access and international development. We will discuss how food touches all aspects of our lives, how growing access to green spaces and healthy foods can change communities, and how you can green your own community through gardening!
