Creative Action and Everyday Urban Agriculture Panel Discussion Nov. 3

November 3, 2010:  Creative Action and Everyday Urban Agriculture
Panel: Laura DeLind, Eve Mosher, Tattfoo Tan, Domenic Vitiello

Moderator: Jean Gardner

Urban agriculture in the United States, as panelist Domenic Vitiello has written, takes the form of everyday urbanism, “largely disconnected from the world of professional design.” The role of creative action in urban agriculture practices is explored by an urban historian, anthropologist, architect, and two artists. What does it mean for individuals in communities engaged in creative practice to reconnect to their food, neighbors, and environment through urban agriculture? What is the significance of the resulting physical engagement with place that growing food requires?
