20141018_112729On Saturday Oct. 18, OKT team members traveled to  Detroit to present three workshops to an international audience at the Black Urban Farmers &Growers Conference. OKT garden coach and policy point-person, Jeff Smith, shared the seven pillars of Food Justice, as developed by participants in OKT’s Food Justice class series over the past several years. Garden coach Camilla Voelker led a skill-share on Creating Edible Urban Foodscapes. OKT cooking coach, Toni Scott, and communications officer, Stelle Slootmaker, talked about How to Dialogue on Diet: Fostering Healthier Eating through Popular Education. Executive director, Lisa Oliver-King, pitched in at all three sessions and board member, Anita Moore, served as a great support person. All three presentations enjoyed great attendance and lively discussions. The team felt like they made a real contribution to an important gathering.
