Rooted in Community 2000; Harvesting the Power of Youth

Make a commitment to spread your roots nationwide while uplifting your community, encourage the youth organizers of this year's Rooted in Community conference. 

Rooted in Community 2000: Harvesting the Power of Youth will develop youth leaders concerned about the importance of easily accessible and healthy foods.  Participants will be challenged to expand their understanding of ecological sustainability and to build an active and organized national network around food systems and food security.  Sponsored by The Food Project, San Francisco League of Urban Gardeners (SLUG), the American Community Gardening Association (ACGA), and Literacy for Environmental Justice, the conference will take place July 28-30, 2000 in the Marin Headlands outside of San Francisco.

Youth and staff from the sponsoring organizations are working together to design interactive workshops, panel discussions, site visits and networking opportunities to provide participants of all ages with the tools to strengthen their community-based programs while building a national network.  The conference coordinators are actively soliciting workshop ideas and are looking for youth and adult co-facilitators who have experience presenting engaging workshops on topics relating to food systems and youth leadership.

Young leaders (ages 15-22) and adults from around the country who are engaged in urban and rural agriculture, community gardening, food security and environmental stewardship are encouraged to attend the conference.  If you are interested in receiving registration materials or would like to present at Rooted in Community 2000: Harvesting the Power of Youth, please contact The Food Project, P.O. Box 705, Lincoln, MA 01773, phone:781-259-8621, fax:781-259-9659 or email: outreach@thefoodproject.org
