REGAIN January Office Hour – Tackling Food Insecurity and Access in Northfield, MN

January 19, 2022 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CST

REGAIN is excited to continue our Fall Office Hour Series in 2022 – Community Organizing for Agricultural Climate Change Resilience. We’ve got an amazing line up of advocates and activists who are working within their communities to mitigate and respond to the climate crisis.

Antonio Alba Merez is the Program Director for the Community Land Share, Community Connector, and Neighborhood Garden initiatives. These programs work to address food insecurity and land access are the priorities in Northfield, MN. The programs allow community members to rent a farm plot and grow nutritious and cultural foods for their own consumption or as enterprise development. Finally, Sharing Our Roots provides structure, support, training, and networking opportunities for Community Connectors to mobilize their neighborhoods and enact positive change within their communities. Antonio will be joined by Community Connector Lina Nyaronge for his presentation. Please join us!
