Many people in the Charlottesville area seem to value local food, but one University of Virginia lecturer said she thinks the community can take the movement one step further.
“This food movement is about healing lands, neighborhoods and identities,” said Tanya Denckla Cobb, associate director of the Institute for Environmental Negotiation. “It’s about how creative this movement is in finding ways to use open spaces in communities for agriculture.”
Cobb shared stories from her new book, “Reclaiming Our Food,” at CitySpace on Tuesday as part of the Greater Virginia Green Building Council’s luncheon series.
