Leah Penniman: Amplifying the Voices of Black and Brown Farmers

Tune in to hear about: - What cover cropping and vermicomposting have in common. - How Europeans essentially kidnapped skilled Black agriculturalists. - How Leah’s upbringing and experiences brought her to a connection with the earth and farming. - Why changing diets in marginalized communities really is an access issue NOT an education, motivation, or anything-else issue. - The incredible programs Soul Fire Farm is running, how they came about, and where they’d like to go from here.   Leah is a Black Kreyol farmer who has been tending the soil for twenty years and organizing for an anti-racist food system for fifteen years. She’s an educator, food justice activist, executive director of Soul Fire Farm and author of Farming While Black: Soul Fire Farm’s Practical Guide to Liberation on the Land.   Listen at the link below, on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play or wherever you get your podcasts.
