Partnerships for Healthier Corner Stores:

How nutrition, tobacco control, and alcohol control advocates can collaborate to develop comprehensive strategies to improve and support local food stores.

When:  July 2, 2013 11am-noon PST

Where:  Webinar

Description:  Public health advocates specializing in nutrition, tobacco control, and alcohol control have each developed strategies to increase access to healthy foods in stores and decrease access to less healthy foods and substances – but generally these efforts have been uncoordinated.  This webinar will present strategies for leveraging the expertise in these fields to develop a comprehensive approach to creating healthy corner stores, with examples of communities that are successfully breaking down these silos.

Urban Agriculture

When:  July 23, 2013

Time: 11:00 – 12:00 PST

Where:  Webinar

Description:  Urban agriculture – including home gardens, community gardens, and urban farms – can help improve residents’ access to fresh fruits and vegetables, physical activity, and educational and entrepreneurial opportunities. While the idea of promoting urban agriculture is gaining mainstream acceptance, tricky questions often crop up: Should sales be allowed? Should growing practices be regulated? What kinds of requirements for soil testing are reasonable? Do ADA standards apply to urban agriculture? This training includes practical advice and model land use strategies to support and protect urban agriculture.
