SCLT at Bioneers Conference, alongside Will Allen

Will and RichOn Friday, October 23, SCLT’s City Farm Steward Rich Pederson presented a workshop on Urban Agriculture at the Bioneers by the Bay Conference in New Bedford, MA. Rich presented “Urban Agriculture – Real Solutions to Improve Access to Healthy Food” with Will Allen of Growing Power, Inc.

Hundreds of people joined Rich and Will to hear about how to incorporate community programming to the difficult work of growing food in the city, with results anyone can visit either farm and see. The urban agriculturalists covered a range of topics, including vermicomposting, organic methods, and challenges of urban food production, while also hitting on their commitment to maintaining viable models of sustainability in three main areas: community, environment, economy.

Many thanks to Bioneers by the Bay for inviting Rich to be a part of the conference!
