Our June meeting's educational program will be COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT presented by Courtney Watson of University of South Carolina.  

Description of presentation:  

Growing food and growing jobs are the two main focuses of Mill Village Farms. Both of these areas are continued topics of conversation in Greenville and in the country. As Greenville continues to grow, creative approaches are being taken for job creation and food consumption. Courtney Watson, today's speaker, is a member of the MVF team who specializes in issues of food insecurity for low-income families which is a niche problem of food consumption in Greenville. How can we, as members of a different socio-economic community, participate in more responsible food consumption? Today's conversation will revolve around the growing interest in Urban Agriculture, how low-income families are impacted by food insecurity, and the broader community impacts of these issues.
