SPUR Lunchtime Forum: The rise of counter-institutions

10:12 AM PDT on July 13, 2009

"Community-based antidotes to the anti-humanist mega-schemes of the Moderns flourished in the 1960s and 1970s, and some morphed into sustainable new models of community organization. Join a discussion with James Tracy, San Francisco Community Land Trust Board of Directors president; Rene Cazenave, executive director of the San Francisco Information Clearing House; Pam Peirce, author and founder of the San Francisco League of Urban Gardeners; and Gabriel Metcalf SPUR’s executive director, to learn about the origins of urban gardens, land trusts, and community development corporations."
