The Kingston Urban Agriculture Committee hosted a visioning session on Tuesday, October 22nd at the Kingston Public Library.
Some twenty people attended that included farmers, organizers, academics, nurses and many others of affiliated trade.
After some explanation from moderator Corinne Wolcott on a democratic leadership model, the group participated in a visioning session to identify the needs on the Urban Ag front in the city of Kingston.
The four categories that arose were: Community Outreach; Fundraising and Grants; Growers; Policy Change and Market Expansion. The four groups will work independently, meeting as often as is necessary while reporting back to the Urban Agriculture Committee each month with any necessary updates or progress.
If you are interested in urban agriculture and wish to participate in one or more of the groups listed below, please contact the group organizer for upcoming meetings. If you wish to join the Kingston Urban Agriculture mailing list, contact Rebecca Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org
