Absa and Anna managed to get an overwhelming amount of business cards, and are now working hard to sort out said cards. This experience taught them so much about food equity and gave some sage advice for gardening. It has also given them some inspiration as to who would make a great speaker at this year's summit.
The way in which a lot of the food is being produced right now is concerning, to say the least. The way in which mass food production is happening is stripping the soil of its nutrients and furthering climate change. Rooting DC provides a space to talk about food security and sustainability practices that are open and free to the public. The forum shows that there are people who care about gardening, even if sometimes it seems like no one carrots all.
All in all, Absa and Anna truly enjoyed the thyme spent there.
