We recently secured five acres at ‘Field Good Farm’ near Fort Worth, Texas. We have already broke soil for our no-till regenerative farm. We will continue to provide educational classes for  growing your own food, history of Black Farmers and resistance, seed keeping and seed stories, beekeeping, children’s soil and farming classes and cooking classes at our community base, the Pan-African Connection Bookstore and Resource Center. The plan is to grow enough produce to provide fresh farm vegetables and watermelons in CSA boxes this summer. We will offer healthy food culturally relevant to the palate and food memories of Black and Latino families our communities. The farm is a BIPOC/Plus-operated farm. We want to control the food narrative in our communities, free of any exploitative leanings from dominant funders. We know what diseases Black and Latino fall prey to and we know that only through internal collective Intergenerational work can we solve our health challenges.
