This month our Farming for Justice Discussion Group featured us here at Groundswell Center, speaking about the work we’ve been doing around Equity in the organization. The presentation and discussion was recorded, which you can view here. In short, we center equity in our organization because that is the future of farming and a sustainable and regenerative food system that works. With Big Ag controlling most of production, but only representing the top small percent of the large farms, we have to support and make space for local, historically marginalized, young and beginning farmers.
As mentioned in the recording, you can find our equity statement on our website here.
Also, here’s a list of local and regional organization and farms that support equity:
