Featuring Will Allen as our keynote speaker, this important event will draw on a nation of wisdom and expertise to identify and break down barriers to urban agriculture in the Baltimore / DC region, and inspire the next generation of farmers to create successful urban farming enterprises that create green jobs and healthy food in their neighborhoods while dismantling oppression and injustice in our food system.
