About Black Farmers Collective

We are honored to work with the Black Farmers Collective

The Black Farmers Collective is a group of urban food system activists dedicated to providing opportunities to improve the health of our communities through all aspects of the food system. The Collective are growers, sellers, preparers, educators, and eaters.  The organization’s vision is based in the need for a place for African American leadership on the land, the Kwanzaa principle of cooperative economics, and the realization that mitigating the climate crisis requires action to support local production, carbon sequestration, and natural habitat creation.
