In June, FIN hosted a second convening with organizations working in urban agriculture throughout South King County. The group discussed how as a network we can connect people to resources and land to farm or garden. As an initial step, the group began to create an inventory of community gardens, urban farms and related programs happening now. The group- the South King County Urban Ag Networks now meets quarterly and has listserv to share info and resources. If you are interested in learning more and joining the group, please contact Sheelan at email@example.com.
The steering committee recently approved a charter that clarifies roles and expectations and has set a goal to increase representation of community members to 50% of the committee. In the next couple months each working group will get to weigh in our plan for recruiting and onboarding new members. Recruitment will not begin for several months.
