Community-based agriculture is the process of demonstrating the harmonious relationship between people, nature, and community. Join Maplewood Garden Club on Monday, September 12, at 7:30 when Tobias Fox presents “Urban Agriculture as a Catalyst for Community Development.” As founder and managing director of the community-driven, nonprofit organization Newark Science and Sustainability, Inc. and founder and facilitator of the Newark Community Food System, Fox has demonstrated collaborative leadership on a grassroots level for 10 years. Aside from being a writer and having a decade of independent publishing experience, he is a professional organizer, urban farmer, photographer, and coordinator of an annual Sustainable Living Empowerment Conference. He also conducts various community events, presentations, and workshops on sustainable-living practices and assists numerous urban farmers and gardeners with the cultivation of their agricultural space. He has also helped with the planting of nearly 100 trees in low-income communities with high environmental concerns. More recently, Fox has expanded his global outreach into the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, and Uganda, and has earned many accolades for his work. His presentation will follow a brief business meeting and conclude with a live Q&A session.
This meeting will be held at the Woodland, 60 Woodland Road. For those unable to attend, a Zoom link will be posted on MGC’s website, www.maplewoodgardenclub.org.
