Growing NYC's Solidarity Economy with Evan Zavidow at GreenThumb GrowTogether 2019

  • CUNY Graduate Center 365 5th Avenue New York, NY, 10016 United States (map)

Explore how community gardeners can work with other collectively managed and democratically-governed initiatives throughout the city, like worker, food, housing, and financial cooperatives, CSA programs, and land trusts.

In this workshop, participants will learn:

  • A bit about the history of community garden organizing in New York City

  • An overview of solidarity economics: how does NYC’s current economic landscape impact gardeners? what ideals do we want an economy? What other groups throughout the city are engaged in work with similar values?

  • How can gardeners make meaningful connections with other solidarity economy organizations and enterprises to grow a movement for racial, economic, environmental justice?
