Real World Farm & Garden Education

Farm and garden-based education programs teach food- and eco-literacy, and offer healthy activities and early vocational training for would-be farmers. They can build a bridge between urban and rural communities and provide a basis for better food procurement policies. These education programs are also often confronted with issues of class privilege and access, the gentrification of urban communities, and diverse historical experiences that impact people’s relationship to the land, to farming, and to eating. Through presentation, conversation, and Q&A, our two panelists—both directors of inspiring East Bay educational programs—will discuss the promise and challenges of farming and gardening in an educational context.
