The upcoming Just Food conference at Princeton Theological Seminary is aiming for “an essential conversation about food justice, sustainable agriculture, food insecurity, and innovative ways to change the way we relate to food.”
The lineup is promising. Featured speakers for the Sept. 24-26 event include Will Allen, recipient of the John D. and Katherine T. McArthur Foundation Genius Grant and founder of Growing Power, the Milwaukee-based nonprofit urban farm; and Norman Wirzba, author of “Food and Faith,” and professor of theology, ecology and rural life at Duke Divinity School.
Workshop subjects include community gardens, using story and art, and human rights in agriculture. Field trips to the Seminary’s new 21-acre Farminary, directed by Nate Stucky, are also on the schedule.
Showing community connections, the conference will close with a food market on the campus green and will feature The Feed Truck – the Kingston United Methodist’s mobile experiment in radical hospitality, that already makes regular stops at Trinity Church, 33 Mercer.
Registration for the conference at the Seminary, 64 Mercer St., costs $195 and includes the program, a Thursday coffee break & dinner, the Friday coffee break, lunch and dinner. The Friday dinner is provided as part of the Farminary field trip. For information, call (609) 497-7990 or write firstname.lastname@example.org.
