Workshop Description

Grain is the perfect metaphor for how we've lost control of our food supply, and with it the skills and tools to feed ourselves. Learn how communities from Alaska to Arizona are empowering themselves by reviving local grain production to improve food security, local economies and the environment. Come join the conversation, get inspired and learn how to turn your own community into a hotbed of revolution.
