Uprooting Racism will be a theory and action training for community garden leaders to uproot systemic racism. We will delve deep into the history of our community gardens and examine our personal and collective roles as stewards of the land and as facilitators. Much of the time will be spent developing tangible action plans for uprooting these oppressions within our own gardens. Preference for this training will be given to members of registered NYC Parks GreenThumb community gardens.
Gardeners with all levels of experience with discussing these issues are welcome to apply.
