Farm to Table in Communities of Color

Farm to Table in Communities of Color

The farm to table movement is complicated in communities of color, where farming often comes with stigma and historical baggage, recalling a stark history of slavery and exploitive migrant labor. Natasha Bowens, founder of The Color of Food, stresses that this stigma is going to have to be overcome, and it's going to be overcome by bottom-up-solutions, connecting young farmers of color to farmers with decades of experience underneath their belts. She explains: "We don't have to wait around for the policy makers. We can make our own solutions."
