On October 5th, CFF hosted a reception called Urban Agriculture & Social Justice Activism to celebrate the launch of a new book, Beyond the Kale: Urban Agriculture and Social Justice Activism in New York City by Kristin Reynolds and Nevin Cohen. You can find a video recording of the briefing below.
The evening began with a wine and cheese reception and open networking. Funders and urban ag practitioners mingled over local NY wine and then the authors presented the book’s key findings to the audience, followed by a Q&A including remarks from some of the book’s interviewees. This video shows the presentation given by Nevin and Kristn, and the conversation that ensued. You can skip the short intro and jump right to the presentation at the 2:45 mark. The presentation ends and Q&A begins at the 38:20 mark
