This is the first week without our awesome #DukeEngage intern, @kailai.lin . Tommy was with us for eight weeks and taught us more than we taught him! Tommy, we already miss your easy laugh, great questions, enthusiasm, and most of all, we miss your presence on the farm. Good luck in all you do, we know it will be awesome!

There is nothing quite as satisfying as the burst of flavor from a tomato picked ripe from the vine. 🍅 So thrilled to be sharing these beautiful homies in abundance with our CSA customers and Farmers Market friends. Here’s to a blessed week, and Eclipse. 🌙

Some of the findings from the @kk_andp study on Charlotte's food systems. For us to be as big & forward thinking as we claim, we seriously are behind in this area. We need to do better. Our Farmers are underpaid & our Farmers market is inadequately equipped with the tools it needs to feed & educate the masses. #charlotte #charlottenc #foodadvocacy #foodsystems #farmersmarket #farmersofcolor #immigrantfarmers #foodinsecurity #foodeducation #foodaccess #agriculture #foodtourism #untappedpotential #healthycommunities #healthyfamilies #healthylifestyle

We're really inspired by Soulfire Farm, a farm in Petersburg, NY working to “end racism and injustice in our food system.” @soulfirefarm offers community programs, farm training, and even a CSA share on a sliding scale. You can show your support by volunteering on one of their monthly community farm days or by donating to them to make sure their mission continues on and thrives!

Here I have a small sampling of coriander from the cilantro planted earlier in the season. A life cycle in the palm of my hand.

One of the most important learning experiences of this urban farming program, for me, has centered on seed. The process of life unfurling. The significance of warmth and moisture. The simultaneous fragility and strength. These are the memories that will continue to teach me. 
_
Before I entered graduate school I talked with my granny and told her how excited I was to learn about herbs. She looked at me in a way that let me know she was proud. She told me how glad she was that I chose to follow the path toward herbal medicine. And I think image embodies what she had in mind – to utilize the skills she taught me, and reclaim connection to the Earth and all the healing she provides. I am so thankful for all the time I had with my grandmother from the garden, to the kitchen.

Transitioning plants from the greenhouse to the ground can be stressful for seedlings in the same way moving into a new environment can be for us. Even when we outgrow our containers and are ready for change it can scary! But provided with enough water, sunshine, and love even the roughest transitions can be made smooth. #soulfirefarm #blackandbrownfarmers #farmersofcolor #handsonland #lifeonland

Packets of seeds at @namu_farm. “How plants adapt to warming temperatures will determine the future of feeding the planet.” I wrote about crops, culture, & climate change. Link in bio.

Had the chance to head up to Sacramento and stop in at #RKelleyFarms today. What a great place! The smell of the melons was so intense. And the colors of the veg? Really incredible. I even learned about ways to prepare black eyed beans from the matriarch of a family that came up to pick their own beans (curry and stir fry for the young beans, blanch and freeze the mature beans for use throughout the year 😉). Needless to say I went over budget on veggies 😏😃.

This beauty doesn’t need a filter.

We harvested some radishes that live up to their name (pink beauties) and lettuce as big as Tommy’s head!

Akello’s out here teaching our youth proper farm tool usage. Our summer youth program was welcomed by a week of 100 degree temps and I’m happy to report I only died once. My crew is a good crew.

My emotions are all over the place lately.  But in the middle of the emotions there is this.  Whether I feel hopeful or bold or afraid or angry, this exists.  This beautiful country and this food, grown right here.  Wild and cultivated, grown with affection and hope and sometimes courage. Today I helped in the school garden and I came home with an assortment of goodies, some grown on site and some freely given and some growing on their own, untended, up on the hill. And then later we went to the farmers market.  There are so many stalls run by small family farms there and many of them manned by an abuela or a mijito. ... I’m sometimes so lost as a Mexican American person here in Oregon.  But seeing my people doing their thing and growing beautiful food and bringing it to the market and displaying it with pride ... I feel like I’m not that far from home and that everything is going to be okay.  #quieromuchoamigente #xicanainoregon

This weekend I spent time at @soulfirefarm with the BLFI family for a reunion and Soulstice Party.  Nature reminds me of ancestral healing and paves the path for renewed intentions, remembering colonization, and communal thriving. ✨🌿💦🔥💨 .

There's a lot of love going around. It's the beginning of Summer! Tomorrow, we are holding a fund-raiser for our just right to offer freshly farmed food. Natural good food is not a luxury, it is a birth right. We're in the slow food movement for the long term. We want justice for people who have intentionally been marginalized by an industrialized food and agricultural system that seeks to suck your blood- of its basic nutrients and life force. We stand for peace and understanding. And we willfully work toward inclusion of all people, land creatures, ancestor Spirits and elements of the Earth. We do this through radical art and sharing food. Thanks to the Ones who have come before us, who guide and lead the way. We are everything because of them.💜
🙏🏽Blessings on you and your lot.🌿 .
Featuring sounds by @baronhawkpoitier @r.l_music, nourishment by @sjbine and @mahatti, and lots of volunteer assistance from our communities. #gratefulearth

Magic happens when black and brown people get together on land to be in community with each other. So blessed to spend this weekend celebrating the 5th anniversary of the Black and Latinx Farmers Immersion program with all these beautiful people. It’s been incredible sharing space with everyone! #soulfirefarm #blfi #blackandlatinxfarmers #farmersofcolor #handsonland #landispower #liberation #solidarity #foodjustice #foodsovereignty

The AMC DREAM CAFE is finally here!!!! "A new project called the Dream Cafe and Community Food Hub spearheaded by FoodLab Detroit and Allied Media Conference...developing a model of “food production and service that is truly equitable, sustainable, cooperative, and community driven.” And though there’s a deeper goal in the Dream Cafe, the June 14 through June 19 event is a welcoming celebration that includes a temporary full-service cafe run by local black-owned businesses that will take over the Cass Cafe; a series of pop ups featuring local and visiting chefs; hands-on cooking workshops; and an outdoor market showcasing local producers. The entire event is made possible by collaborative partnerships among urban farmers, local producers, local chefs, visiting chefs, the chefs’ crews, and food sovereignty organizers. In that way, the event not only imagines how things could look, but also celebrates all the work that people of color who live here are already doing." - Tom Perkins, The Metro Times #amcdreamcafe #foodlabdetroit #amc2018 #equityatthetable #chefsofcolor #farmersofcolor

We launched a new campaign to document people of color who want good food! Food is our first line of prevention from diseases, mental and emotional instability, common aches and pains, and more!

This gingerade from @phatbeetsoakland is HELLA POWERFUL!👊 Super refreshing and really packs a spicy ginger punch that kinda warms you like cognac! I’m not even kidding. It also empowers Oakland youth with job training and employment, bringing fresh produce and farming to urban areas.  I could drink it all day long. #phatbeetsproduce #gingerade #oakland #youthjobs #farmersofcolor #youthpickleco #foodjustice

Meet Jessica Turner, our new Booking Coordinator! Jess is a Black herbalist, urban farmer and educator who has done organizing, communications and political strategy on economic and racial justice campaigns for the last decade. She was raised in a working-class family in Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay watershed, where her love of the plant world began. Some of her favorite memories from childhood involve trips with her mother and grandmother to local farm stands for produce they would cook together at big family gatherings. She began farming in 2014 to recover from social justice campaign burnout, discovering many of the radical ideals she had long held reflected back in the horizontal, mutualist relations that exist in nonhuman nature. Jess also works in New York City schools, helping empower young people to grow food that is good for their bodies (and the Earth!) and facilitates workshops with adults on plant-based healing. She has farmed and studied plants in Hawai'i, Saint Croix, North Carolina, Puerto Rico and the Hudson Valley. We are so excited to have her be a part of our team! #soulfirefarm #blackfarmers #farmersofcolor #heartwork

“Noting the presence of Mexican, Chinese, Japanese, Asian Indian, Portuguese, Korean, Puerto Rican, and Filipino farm workers, the California Department of Industrial Relations reported that growers preferred to employ ‘a mixture of laborers of various races, speaking diverse languages, and not accustomed to mingling with each other. The practice was intended to avoid labor trouble which might result from having a homogenous group of laborers of the same race or nationality. Laborers speaking different languages were not as likely to arrive at a a mutual understanding which would lead to strikes.’”

As of May, my farming apprenticeship will move into a new phase. The next phase. The heavy growing season phase. Plant sales and CSA and Farmers markets. A cycle will emerge: seed, tend, harvest, repeat. The weather will warm and the unfolding will continue. 
#

I am equally excited and a little nervous for what is to come. This Full Moon in Scorpio has helped me lean into the learning, the development, the complexity. It is teaching me that with all cycles, generation after generation, there is a world of magic waiting and wanting in the depth to be loved. .

Leah visited the Hudson Valley Farm Hub this week to work with their Spanish-speaking team of farmers to develop curriculum for our first ever Spanish-language Black and Latinx Farm Immersion program that will be held in Oct!! During the program we’ll work on whole farm and business planning, sustainable land management, and the role farming can play in social justice movements. #soulfirefarm #foodsovereignty #foodjustice #blacklatinxfarmers #farmersofcolor #BLFI #socialjustice

At the farm we’ve been rolling carts through snow and frozen puddles to seed our earliest crops and get them into the ground. At the same time, we know that the “growing season” is not just about the magical plants and golden rich soil that hug our planet and sustain our lives. Growth is also about our communities, our shared struggle for freedom on land, our movement to determine our futures for ourselves. Growing, harvesting, and sharing our own food is part of that freedom. We walk out into spring rain knowing that abundance and self determination are always in season. This is why we are co-hosting a “Soul Fire in the City” workday with a community member on Sunday, April 29th. It will be a skillshare for all levels and an opportunity for local friends to learn and work together while transforming a neighbor's lawn into a space to grow food. You and other local friends & family members are invited to attend. Space is limited so please RSVP by sending an email to amani@soulfirefarm.org and love@soulfirefarm.org. #soulfirefarm #lifeonland #solutionary #foodjustice #foodsovereignty #blacklatinxfarmers #farmersofcolor #heartwork

Few things are as satisfying as shredding until dusk, then sitting on the tractor watching the sun set, smelling the coastal hay, and listening to the tree frogs. I will go to bed very happy tonight. #countrylife #proudlandowner #farmersofcolor

Agrarian to us means all people working the land, stewarding our resources to create food and fiber. Agrarians include farm workers, ranchers, growers urban and rural. Our California Farmer Justice Collaborative is working towards intersectional equity for all agrarians. 
Honored to be working with this multi-talented, values-driven, tactical and grounded group (many on the phone who couldn't join in person). We got the Farmer Equity Act passed, and we will continue empowering agrarians of color.

#farmgirlfriday Mark my words, she will be shredding Mommy's pasture before she is driving on city streets. #trainupachild #motherdaughtermoments #farmlife #countrylife #fordtractors #proudlandowners #brazosbottom #farmersofcolor
the harvest is abundant with  gun wounds,
the fields blossom with fire and crosses,
the saints and devils laugh in unison.
are the ones who grow coffee and the faces that can tomatoes, the same as those whose collar are white?
are the ones who seek to escape fear and the ones who barely escaped bombs, the same as those who drink tea in the ivory tower?

Best way to spend last day of Black History Month: at Black Farmers Conference. Learning from farmers all over the state, urban and rural.

Growing your own #food is a radical act in and of itself and for #farmersofcolor it can be even more of an #empowering feeling of #health and #freedom. At #Agraria we strive to help combat #fooddeserts and provide space for our #local #families to #farm! http://ow.ly/FMQr30iuGhx
We’ve been busy writing, with more to come this month - including one we’re really looking forward to on the politicization of food. Links to our latest three in this bio, including the newest in the Farming While Black series released yesterday

#farmgirlfriday It has been more than a decade since I learned to do my own farrier work. My fellow horse owners can appreciate the astronomical amount of money I have saved by doing this. It has truly been one of the more empowering choices I have ever made. #pride #empowerment #horselover #womenfarriersrock #countrylife #farmersofcolor
In the struggle to equitably access land, friends are made along the way. Glad to have met these spirited, resilient farmers this weekend.

Woke up feeling homesick after being stuck in Austin all weekend. Drove all the way home only to have lunch in my house and spend some time grooming my Big Boyz, then rushed back to Austin in time to get Mer from school. I'm a little embarrassed at how often I do this. Being home on the ranch heals me in ways that being in my city house never will, even if only for a few hours.  #homesweethome #landowner #horselover #lifessimplepleasures #farmersofcolor

We’ve created a web to sustain our visions towards agroequity! Changed my social work trajectory to incorporate intergenerational trauma healing.

💀 D I A  D E  L O S  M U E R T O S 💀 Channeling some ancestral energy today: gramps with great-grandma Adachi 💪🏼 and my great uncle posing for the camera after shooting a buck on the plains of WY. Industrious, proud, humbled, 1st & 2nd gen immigrants.
While popular imagery might limit the image of a “all-American farmer” to a salt-and-pepper haired, white man astride a big ol’ John Deere (a narrative that excludes the places and experiences of womyn, queer, and/or POC farmers) this is a friendly reminder that migrant labor (esp. forced immigrant labor—indentured, enslaved) has been, and continues to be, the [bent-over] backbone of American agriculture. My great-grandparents, like many fresh-off-the-boat 1st gen-ers, migrated with the harvest, working beneath that hot sun of the West. So today, on the Day of the Dead, I honor their memories and remember the roots and firm footing from which I’ve sprung. -Shizue

“As we know, about 50% of the labor in this country in agriculture comes from Latino people, who are capable of running their own farms. And as we know too, the average age of U.S. farmers is around 60. So these guys are ready to take over farms, they’re ready to have their own businesses, they just don’t have the chance to do it.

I feel that as young farmers what we bring is change. Especially as farmers of color, you don’t really see us so often being the forefront of agriculture. We’re usually behind the scenes, cooking and harvesting. You don’t really see this, and I think we make a difference in our communities.” -- Eduardo Rivera, owner-operator of @sinfronterastc and board member of @youngfarmers
