Episode Info:

Today Elyssa + Alina have the honor of speaking with NYC farmer, advocate, and icon, Karen Washington. Karen is a fierce and compassionate leader, who gives a powerful voice to the fight for justice, resilience, and the end of food apartheid in communities of color. Sitting at Karen’s kitchen table (each with a cat on her lap) gave us a peek inside the warmth and humor of Karen’s character, that isn’t always divulged in her mighty public speaking. We visit The Garden of Happiness, a Bronx community garden, and listen to Karen (literally) sing her praises for Rise and Root farm. Don’t miss this one!
