How does local access to land impact community food security? Why is food sovereignty the new focus in anti-hunger work? As a Detroit-based farmer and economist, guest educator Antonio Rafael will engage us in dialogue around personal experiences of dispossession and ways that impoverished communities are demanding access to land, following the Detroit bankruptcy and financial crisis. He will speak to his work with SWGrows, a community-based farm reclaiming vacant spaces in Southwest Detroit. Sliding scale fee of $10-$20. Please pay what you can to support Giving Gardens and our guest speaker. Free to bridge card-holders and Yad Ezra Clients. Antonio Rafael is a Xicano Boricua educator, writer, organizer, farmer, artist, & entreprenuer from SWDetroit. He co-founded RaizUp collective for decolonial edu-tainment. He has organized with the People's Water Board & Detroiter's Resisting Emergency Management. More than just resisting the abuse of land, water & people, Antonio started SWGrows urban farm & ecological design cooperative to expand art, agriculture & green development in his neighborhood. Giving Gardens is an educational garden and greenhouse at Yad Ezra, a kosher food pantry. www.yadezra.org/giving-gardens **Please park in side lot off Robina St.** https://www.facebook.com/events/1555943784427270/
