Attention to all of you local food lovers and advocates: Join the Just Food Conference! CSA members, community gardeners, urban and rural farmers, food professionals and entrepreneurs will gather for two days of hands-on workshops, discussions, skills-building sessions, and good food.
Learn about cooking and food preservation techniques, CSA trends, and the food justice movement in New York City and beyond, as well learn ways you can mobilize to create good food projects in your own community.
This is the time of year to start thinking about lining up your CSA share. The non-profit Just Food has been keeping tabs on New York City CSA's and as a result, weekly deliveries of fresh produce have increased significantly in this wonderful metropolis. There is no doubt that you will learn more about CSA's, meet farmers and more at the 12th annual CSA conference Just Food is hosting.
