Green Roofs for Healthy Cities has issued its Grey to Green 2015 – Food and Resilience – Call for Presentation and Training Proposals.
Read on from GRHC:
“It will be three years since the Urban Agriculture Summit in Toronto and many new developments in the field have taken place across North America and around the world. On June 1-2, 2015, Green Roofs for Healthy Cities will be hosting Grey to Green in Toronto – with a focus on food and resilience. We invite you and your organization to become involved by:
Submitting a presentation proposal on the latest best practice/innovation in design, technology, policy, and research. Deadline is February 2, 2015.
- Propose a special skills / training workshop in this field, from beekeeping to SPIN gardening. Deadline is February 2, 2015.
- Sponsor the event and help us make it an outstanding opportunity for learning, networking and development.”
In the future, our city-regions will need to embrace all forms of living green infrastructure to help combat the negative effects of climate change. Much of this should be designed to support multiple forms and scales of food production in an integrated system that utilizes numerous energy and nutrient streams and abundant labour.
Please join us June 1-2, 2015 to celebrate and share our successes in this emerging sector and plan for future growth. Go to www.greytogreenconference.org for more details and to submit presentation and training proposals. Thank you for your interest and support! ~ Steven Peck, GRP, Honorary ASLA, Founder and President Green Roofs for Healthy Cities
