Just Us 4 Food Justice: a One-day Workshop for Youth Food Justice Activists

Just Us 4 Food Justice: a One-day Workshop for Youth Food Justice Activists


Just Us 4 Food Justice is a daylong intensive that takes theory and practice and blends them into Praxis. The program will use the framework of Social Permaculture- using ecological permaculture principles and applying them for social good and community building. We will weave together the elements of self-love, meditation and mindfulness, food sovereignty, culture and skill-building activities.

Led by Permaculturist Pandora Thomas with breakout sessions led by holistic health educator Brandie Mack, Ceres Garden Manager Sara McCamant, and Forest Fein of the Mindfulness Program for Urban Youth.

Youth will have the opportunity to gain an understanding of social permaculture, how it can be used to improve their lives, and how it is useful in designing solutions to challenges within their organizations and communities. At the end of the day we will all make dinner together in Ceres’ commercial kitchen.

The event will take place at Ceres Community Project in Sebastopol, CA
9:30am – 7:00pm June 23, 2017
Lunch and dinner will be provided.

This is a free event, but space is limited. If interested in participating please send over a brief paragraph describing your organization, the work it focuses on, and what it hopes to gain from participating in this food justice intensive over to  ernesto@bioneers.org or youth@bioneers.org.

We will respond within one week if your group has been accepted to participate in the intensive.
