Wednesday, October 21st from 5:30-7pm
Concordia Greenhouse – 13th Floor, Hall Building 
 
We welcome Shona Watt from Le TinyHomestead for an interactive presentation and discussion on food justice issues.
What are some of the ethical questions that surround what we eat on a daily basis?
We’ll talk about some of the many ways that racism, sexism, classism, and accessibility shape the gap between who grows “healthy” food and who gets to eat it.
The discussion will also focus on how we can incorporate food justice into how we garden, eat, and advocate.
Free – donation accepted.
