We will have several wonderful keynote speakers, including City Farmer's
Spring Gillard author of the "Diary of a Compost Hotline Operator",
FoodShare's Executive Director Debbie Field talking about community
gardening as activism and Ken Jeffers, Manager, Access and Equity, City of
Toronto speaking about issues of diversity.
This year we are delighted to announce that there will be a larger than
usual international presence at the conference. Jac Smit and Joe Nasr of
the Urban Agriculture Network will be leading several discussion and
presentation sessions on international urban ag activities.
Please note that there are 2 pre-conference full day workshops scheduled for
Sept 30th.: one that is focused on municipal CG programs (and would be
great for your local govt staff to attend) and another on the Garden Mosaics
program at Cornell University <http://www.gardenmosaics.cornell.edu/>
If you plan on attending either, you would need to arrive in Toronto on Sept
29th. Again, info is in the brochure
See you in September! (plan to get to Toronto on Sept 30th--the conference
