    Episode #19 ~ Food, Justice & Finding the Intersections w/ Venus Barnes

    I had such a great conversation with Venus Barnes, a member of the PCC community as the Learning Garden Coordinator at the Sylvania Campus and she is also a former student here as well. Venus started a Food Justice Cohort that I was really excited to share about and she also did an excellent job of addressing and looking at many of the intersections of the social just and sustainability movement.
