The Land Tenure and Building Neighborhood Capacity: A Community Land Trust Model for Trenton’s Capital City Farm event will serve as an opportunity to convene multi-sector stakeholders to explore the intersectionality of socio-spatial challenges. Such as generational wealth inequities created by Redlining and Urban Renewal policies, rising living expenses, coupled with land and construction costs outpacing public resources, which will reactivate a timely discussion on the value of models like Community Land Trusts and Cooperatives, to support equitable neighborhood development.
