RootSkills 2016

Spring RootSkills Retreat


RootSkills 2016Join us and the New England Grassroots Environment Fund on Saturday May 7th for this one-of-a-kind retreat featuring keynote speaker Leah Penniman of Soul Fire Farm. Leah will join us for a passionate and reflective conversation about the work of Soul Fire Farm and the Black farming community to advance food sovereignty. Following Leah’s keynote, we will break into three interactive workshops tracks (check them out!). We will end the day connecting to the land and our fellow RootSkills participants at Galego Community Farm.

For those groups who are part of our networks at NAMA, the workshop ‘When You Know Who You Are, You Will Know What to Do’, lead by Jay O’Hara and Marla Marcum of the Climate Disobedience Center would be a great fit. This event is open to all, but space is limited.

And as an added bonus, on Friday evening we invite you to PEP Talks LIVE: Grassroots Perspectives on Reimagining Equity and Access to hear from Leah Penniman of Soul Fire Farm and Jay O’Hara of the Climate Disobedience Center.  Enjoy this exclusive opportunity to hear their reflections on the role of personal discovery and transformation in grassroots action. We hope to see you there!
