Urban Agriculture and Food Sovereignty: Examining our MI Roots

June 25-27, 2012 – 8:00 AM – 3 PM
June 28, 2012 – 8:00 AM – 1 PM

Our previous institutes have been extremely successful and this year we will be using a similar mix of direct experience and community immersion, modeling by expert place-based and EcoJustice educators, exploration of a set of essential questions using EcoJustice readings and concepts, and curriculum planning in our teams and across schools. This year’s focus is on Urban Agriculture and Food Sovereignty.
