Agri-culture is based on the relationship between humans and the land, focusing on the way in which land is cultivated to provide sustenance for a community. Tracing a history from colonialism to modern industrialization, conventional agriculture has evolved into a largely exploitative practice across race, gender, and class.
If we broaden the horizon to gain perspective on the history of agriculture as it relates to land and race, we can begin to understand what equity and justice mean in our farming practices, and explore ways in which we can implement equity in farm businesses.
In this session we will deepen our knowledge on the intersection of agriculture, race and land, and explore different ways farmers are incorporating their commitment to justice into their business models.
