Happy #MappingMonday Freedom Colony Fam!
Today we are featuring a truly amazing organization, Soul Fire Farm.
Soul Fire Farm is a BIPOC*-centered community farm committed to ending racism and injustice in the food system. They raise and distribute life-giving food as a means to end food apartheid. With deep reverence for the land and wisdom of our ancestors, they work to reclaim the collective right of descendants of the African diaspora to belong to the earth and to have agency in the food system. They bring diverse communities together on this healing land to share skills on sustainable agriculture, natural building, spiritual activism, health, and environmental justice. They are training the next generation of activist-farmers and strengthening the movements for food sovereignty and community self-determination.
*BIPOC = Black, Indigenous, and People of Color
Members of the Northeast Farmers of Color Network are claiming their sovereignty and calling for reparations of land and resources so that they can grow nourishing food and distribute it in our communities. The specific projects and resource needs of farmers of color are listed on the map. This map serves as a powerful opportunity for people to people solidarity. It’s simple. If you have resources, contact the farmer directly to share.
The Texas Freedom Colonies Project is working to connect our farmers within our freedom colonies and make their needs visible to those who are able to help. IN the meantime, check out the map and see how you can learn more about the projects in need and how you can help –> https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/edit?mid=1YvB3PuH8jeR_yoFCLvrKOTQQ3p_5NmkK&ll=36.04297229383501%2C-77.67547230820321&z=11
