The in-person symposium which was to hold in Kansas City was moved to a virtual format in October due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation.

This symposium includes knowledge on: urban agricultural production, local food systems distribution, climate change, nutrition, urban farmer education, urban ag policy, planning and development, food access and justice, and food sovereignty.
