Wilbur A. Levin Keynote Address presented by
Malik Yakini, executive director, Detroit Black Community Food Security Network

Inspired by BBG’s ongoing, multifaceted Green Garden, Green City initiative, this year’s conference will lead community conversations regarding issues of urban ecology, wellness, stewardship, and the connections required of concerned citizens engaged in transforming lives and neighborhoods. In addition to workshops, panel discussions, break-out sessions, and more, this year’s Making Brooklyn Bloom will mark the conference’s return to the Palm House, where visitors are invited to network with dozens of NYC greening organizations.
