      Join us for a day of information, discussion, strategizing and
      training on how to secure land in your community for food production
      to increase access to healthy food for all, including low-income/food
      stamp eligible communities.

      Growing food in the city has enormous potential to increase access to
      healthy food, create green collar jobs and other economic
      opportunities and build community self reliance. Securing sustained
      access to land for food production is one of the most challenging and
      most important steps for almost all urban and suburban agriculture
      projects.

      Topics to be covered in the workshop include: writing leases,
      barriers to accessing public and private land, zoning and planning
      laws, community organizing to pass policies, easements and policies
      we can pass to help secure land and grow urban agriculture.

      This training is being organized by the California Food & Justice
      Coalition and is co-hosted by the Oakland Food Connection, OBUGS, San
      Francisco Department of the Environment's Victory Gardens Program,
      People's Grocery, Alemany Farm, Urban Tilth, the HOPE Collaborative,
      City Slickers Farm, Farm Link, Mo' Better Food & Full Circle Farm.

      The California Food and Justice Coalition is a statewide membership
      coalition committed to the basic human right to healthy food while
      advancing social, agricultural, environmental and economic justice.
      Through advocacy, organizing and education, we collaborate with
      community-based efforts to create a sustainable food supply for the
      residents of California.
