TEMPLE STUDENTS EXPLORE URBAN FARMS AND COMMUNITY GARDENS : Moderated by Glenn Bergman of Weavers Wa
Start Date: 9/24/2013Start Time: 5:30 PM
End Date: 9/24/2013End Time: 7:00 PM

Event Description:
Can choosing local foods create a more sustainable city? How can we eat healthier in a time of rising obesity and public health concerns? How can design and communal spaces change our neighborhoods? Urban farms and community gardens offer tentative answers at the intersection of these questions. Temple students Alex Epstein of Philly Urban Creators; Katy Ahmet with Temple Community Gardens; and students from the FarmLab architecture seminar will discuss their firsthand experiences with a variety of urban farming models. This discussion will be moderated by Glenn Bergman, the general manager of Weaver’s Way Co-op, a vital institution of community involvement in Northwest Philadelphia. For forty years, Weaver’s Way has provided a diverse selection of high quality, fair-priced foods and a broader understanding of the importance of those to its members and community.
