Tune in to the next NACD Urban and Community Conservation webinar. Scheduled for 12:00noon-1:00pm Eastern time on January 18, the topic is “Outreach to Urban Communities”.
The Pierce CD in the state of Washington developed best practices for connecting to multilingual urban agriculture communities. To build lasting relationships and bridge communities, they strive for equity in outreach and shared decision-making.
In Minnesota, the Washington CD has worked to engage Homeowners’ Associations (apartments, condos, and townhomes) through a “Green Communities” project. Outreach has been driven by feedback from focus groups, which identified barriers and opportunities for clean water projects.
These popular webinars, held on the third Thursday of each month, are sponsored by The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company in partnership with the NACD Urban and Community Resource Policy Group. There is no cost to participate, but space is limited. Registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. To register, email Debra Bogar at firstname.lastname@example.org WITH your name, title, district or business name, state and email address. Information to access the webinar will be sent by email.
