Workshop Session: Saturday II
Some cherished facets of sustainable farming, including farm cooperatives and CSA, have roots in African wisdom. Yet, the number of black farmers has dropped to less than 2% today, while black communities often lack access to fresh food. Explore these issues and the movement to build a food system based on justice, dignity, and abundance for all.
Leah Penniman, author of Farming While Black, is on a mission to end racism in the food system. She farms at Soul Fire Farm in New York.
