Monday, Nov. 8, noon–1 p.m.
Black communities have a long and complicated relationship with American soil. What are the connections between this history and current “food apartheid” (food deserts)? How is the Black farming movement connected to changes in larger food systems and the growth of worker cooperatives? Join speakers from the S.F. Foundation, Urban Tilth, and Mandela Grocery Cooperative, in conversation with Natalie Baszile, author of Queen Sugar and We Are Each Other’s Harvest, to explore multiple issues and interconnections that surround farming and food access for BIPOC communities.
