Sustainability presentation and discussion led by Christopher Brenna, founder and managing director of Revolutionary Earth, a non-profit urban farm and resource alliance in Rochester, Minnesota.
Brenna founded Revolutionary Earth in 2019 to provide a more radical solution to local food justice issues. The “Farm” is a collective comprised of homeowners and community partners who donate existing lawns to be transformed into large-scale gardens. The gardens are planted, tended and harvested by a corps of more than 100 volunteers who pack the produce into weekly boxes that are delivered directly to food-insecure households across the city for free. Brenna will present on the mission and vision of Revolutionary Earth, the philosophical underpinnings of the movement and what makes this model unique.
