Where do we begin to think about food? Is it about how we grow it, how we eat it, or who has access to it? Isn’t it all of it? However you put it, food is as political as it gets. Today, we’ll hear from farmers, organizers, workers, and seed-keepers who all attended the NESAWG conference on food justice in late October. Among them, Leah Penniman whose beautiful new book, Farming While Black: Soul Fire Farm’s Practical Guide to Liberation on the Land, is out now.
