New Haven Farms’ Executive Director Rebecca Kline will speak at a Yale University Law School conference later this week. Kline was invited to take part in a workshop, “The Big Picture Made Small: Perspectives on Local Foods,” as part of the annual New Directions in Environmental Law Conference, which is sponsored by the Yale University Environmental Law Association.
“This student-organized conference, a joint project of the Yale Law School and the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, brings together hundreds of students, practitioners, regulators, and academics from across the Northeast, with the goal of providing new ideas and new energy for environmental law and policy,” according to the event website.
The workshop Kline will take part in “looks at the legal tools that might lead to reform in food production and distribution. This workshop will also highlight on the ground realities from ideologically diverse local leaders in the food movement.”
Kline’s fellow workshop discussant will be Baylen Linnekin, executive director of Keep Food Legal. Moderating the workshop will be Renee Gross, legal coordinator with the Yale Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity.
