Farmers at Soul Fire Farm

“I realized I have to start mobilizing in White communities, my family, my friends,” he [Douglass DeCandia] says, “and doing that in direct accountability with folks who are most impacted, meeting stated needs rather than creating some idea in my head about who needs what and what needs to be done.”

This is a great article from Yes! Magazine about how White farming communities must be held accountable and can work to support people of color in agriculture. This piece mentions Stone Barns Center and Soul Fire Farm, both of whom I had the opportunity to work with at my previous job, and it’s full of resources for further reading.
