Did you know that less than 2% of all farmers in the US are Black? We are celebrating these farm owners for many reasons – in part because of all the discriminatory land policies that followed emancipation to the present day (Here’s a great link for a brief history). Many people in our audience are making a more conscious effort to support Black-Owned Businesses. Here’s our list of Michigan Black owned/operated farms:
Agape Organic Farms
Black Bottom Garden Center
Good Medicine Farm
Georgia Street Community Collective
Keep Growing Detroit Farm
Mary Sam’s Gardens
Nurturing our Seeds
Oakland Avenue Urban Farm
Occupy Yourselves Agricultural Academy
