This workshop will generate a lively discussion about the various ways in which urban farms can locally sell produce they grow.
We will discuss:
- How to generate local economic activity through urban agriculture.
- What it means to be a “community food producer” and how that affects your urban farm.
- What it takes for local food retailers to buy locally produced food.
If you’re an urban farmer who wants to sell locally, a restaurant or store owner who wants to buy from local farms, or just interested in learning what the challenges and opportunities are for increasing local food production and consumption, please join us!
Our friend, Adrionna Fike, co-owner and buyer for Mandela Foods Cooperative, will share her desire to source more food from urban farmers as a means of increasing the availability of food for communities of color in Oakland, along with the challenges they face in buying from local producers.
Sustainable Economies Law Center legal intern, Jamie Katz, will provide an overview of local and state laws that regulate sales of products grown on urban farms.
