TFP and Food Day '12

In celebration of Food Day 2012, The Food Project will be teaming up with partners to provide tours and educational programming that highlights the vibrancy of growing activities in the communities where we collaborate. Under the banner of “Grown in…” we’ll be presenting an array of tours led by Food Project youth highlighting innovative growing efforts in Dorchester, Roxbury, Lynn, and Gloucester, Mass. These tours will conclude with presentations by Food Project youth of workshops addressing food systems, and food access and sovereignty. These workshops were developed largely by the youth themselves, and they are designed to inform and inspire audiences to take action on the critical issues facing our society around food.

More information about the “Grown in…” tours and workshops will be posted to the Massachusetts Food Day website as event details are finalized.

The following is a list of Food Day-related activities The Food Project is currently planning:

  • Potluck and panel discussion with Common Boston in connection with World Food Day on October 16 [tentative]
  • “Grown in …” tours and workshops at TFP farms in Boston, Lincoln, Lynn, and Beverly on October 20
  • TFP representatives to participate in a panel at the Community Food and Farm Forum  hosted by Hampshire College on October 24
