Join Gillian Der 謝美華, coordinator from Renfrew Collingwood Food Justice in a deep dive on the food systems of East Vancouver. We will study how things have changed today from 200 years ago on topics of organic farming, solidarity and distribution systems. We will also be looking at how policy and legislation has transformed our food system into having both a mainstream and parallel food system. Moreover, Gillian will address how racism, xenophobia, and public policy intersects with the ways we navigate our sustainable food resources today whether that’s through local farmers, grocery stores, seed sharing, or community gardens.

This webinar will take place on Zoom. Registration is mandatory. A confirmation email after registration will be sent to you with the zoom link.
