Rooted In Community to host annual conference in August

Rooted In Community (RIC) is a national grassroots network that empowers young people to take leadership in their own communities. They are a diverse movement of youth and adults working together who are committed to fostering healthy communities and food justice through urban and rural agriculture, community gardening, food security, and related environmental justice work.

RIC is holding their annual conference August 4-7 in Washington D.C. The national Rooted in Community conference provides youth and adult organizers with a forum to share strategies and lessons learned. Youth participate in workshops, field trips, leadership training, and networking. Through RIC’s efforts, young people and adults alike are able to witness that their contributions in these areas are not singular, but national in scope. Cost is $150 to register for youth and $225 for adults.
