Collective Response: How our Community Leads Collective Action
Thursday, December 3rd | 9:30 am
In the opening of this year’s Summit we want to highlight some of the amazing work being done in the community, the programs and initiatives that arose from the pandemic to help provide food, aid people in learning to grow food and invigorate our local food systems . How were we able to react to the pandemic and what have we learnt that will inform our collective work going forward?
