Sponsored by the GFASG, this field trip will take participants to two sites where the line between scholarship and activism is deliberately being blurred by food justice activists. The two sites, Urban Tilth in Richmond and the Gill Tract Farm in Albany, are sites of learning, experimentation, and food production. Through discussions with farmers and activists at these two sites, participants will understand how the tension between academy-based and community-based scholarship and activism is being negotiated at two important food justice sites in the East Bay.
