Grow & Tell is a one-day forum for those who want to share and learn about urban agriculture and food policy in Kansas City, network with others, hear about public programs and incentives, and feature their projects, and talk about their priorities, needs, trends and barriers. It is intended to promote access to healthy foods, productive use of surplus land, creation of local jobs and economic activity, and help foster public/private efforts to capitalize on opportunities created by the current momentum in urban agriculture. To further these goals, the objective of the Forum is to gather feedback from diverse stakeholders on local needs, priorities, barriers and trends in the urban agriculture community, and to share information on current local and state programs, projects and incentives.
This is a great opportunity for public and private stakeholders interested in urban agriculture and access to healthy food within the greater Kansas City metropolitan area, including: local farmers and growers; non-profit organizations; food processors and manufacturers; restaurants; retailers; grocery stores and suppliers; community gardeners; federal, state and local government partners; neighborhood associations; and schools and universities.
Information about the next forum will be posted here.
